Opportunities and challenges in a time of welfare changes
and the evidence are clear: good housing helps us stay healthy, with warm, dry
homes and access to green space making a big impact on people’s wellbeing.
However, the policies and politics of the new welfare state have led to
decreased support to the affordable housing thus creating new risks for the
well-being of vulnerable groups. How will the quest for more cost effective
policies impact the activities of the social housing sector and which impact
will it have on the health of residents? How can new synergies be created
between the different sectors despite the difficult context? The event aims
at tackling those questions by bringing together a mix of practitioners and
policy makers from the national and the EU level.
