People’s homes can have a significant impact on their health and well-being. This briefing follows our summary briefing ‘Homes for health and well-being’ on what a future of healthy homes in Wales should look like. It focuses on the importance of affordable homes for health and well-being. We hope that by highlighting the links between housing affordability and health, and by sharing examples of what ‘good’ looks like, this briefing will help stakeholders in the housing system make progress towards a future where affordable homes help to protect and improve the health and well-being of everyone in Wales.
The infographic summarises the findings, looking at the Population Groups and Determinants of Health impacted, along with the key statistics, mitigating actions and potential areas of future research. The Explanatory Note goes into further detail on the above, giving a breakdown of the evidence that informed our positive and negative findings on women, employment and health inequalities. It also offers readers the chance to see the HIA methodology that was used by the team.
