Abstract

This Briefing Paper is the second of three produced by the Institute of Public Care (IPC) for the Housing Learning and Improvement Network to provide a concise overview of key issues highlighted in the joint IPC/ADASS/Housing LIN resource pack, 'Strategic Housing for Older People: Planning, designing and delivering housing that older people want'.   This paper is aimed primarily at Health and Wellbeing Board members and seeks to support them in their understanding of:     
  • The impact of poor housing on the health and wellbeing outcomes of older people.
  • The strategic approaches they can take to influence the provision of housing and housing related services to improve the health and wellbeing of their older population.
