My home, my care, my way – Housing health conference

May 19, 2024

Good and better housing is crucial for the mental and physical health of our communities – this was the focus of an event held earlier this month which brought together colleagues from across the region.

The event was part of the North East and North Cumbria housing, health and care programme, which has been established to build on the collaborative work already underway across our region to tackle and mobilise on this important issue.

Our programme is the region’s sector led improvement initiative focused on delivering better, more integrated housing, care, and support so that people can be healthy, live well, and stay independent in their own home.

The programme has been co-created by the North East branch of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), the NHS North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board, the Northern Housing Consortium, and the TEC Services Association (TSA); with many other partners involved too.

At the recent conference, there was an opportunity to hear from national and regional speakers, to take part in interactive sessions and networking with like-minded people committed to improving housing in our region. Check out the short film from the event:

Join the community of practice

A new ‘community of practice’ – an open forum for knowledge-sharing and collaboration – will support the programme, bringing together council, NHS, housing providers and people with lived experience to learn from each other.

To sign up please email – [email protected] using the subject “Community Housing Programme”.
