Housing Europe Session: Housing and Health

Opportunities and challenges in a time of welfare changes

The experience 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.
