For more information, please contact Kat Nower or Tracey Bignall

We have produced a number of resources as part of the Better Health project, including:

Better Housing briefing papers

Central to the Better Housing project is a collection of evidence-based briefing papers containing research, good practice tips, resources, and key messages targeted towards frontline housing practitioners. Although the papers focus on a variety of different issues and ethnic groups, overarching themes include :

  • the impact of personal or institutional racism on black and minority ethnic service users and staff.
  • limitations in the provision of culturally, ethnically and linguistically appropriate housing services.
  • obstacles to participation and engagement by black and minority ethnic service users in housing services, such as segregation, dispersal or language.
  • intersections between age, disability, gender, faith, poverty and ethnicity.
  • best practice examples to tackle discrimination and disadvantage.

Better Housing website

Better Housing (external website) provides access to the full collection of Better Housing briefings, alongside supplementary collections of related resources, weblinks and events listings. The site also provides news and current affairs information to highlight the changing legislative background to equality issues, and provide guidance to help practitioners embed good practice in their everyday work.

The sites also allow practitioners to participate in the project by putting forward their own research and events information.

To suggest themes for future Better Housing briefings, please contact Kat Nower.
