Health, housing and the impact on health inequalities

Race Equality Foundation, Faith Action and Regional Voices in partnership with the Department of Health hosted two free joint events which explored the relationship between housing and health, and the impact that housing can have upon health inequalities. Speakers, delegates and members of the public had the opportunity to discuss the extent to which poor housing is a compounding factor of poor physical and mental health.
