All the policy work we undertake at Care & Repair is underpinned by the belief that housing is a wider determinant of health.

Through our adaptations, we prevent falls at home. Through our home improvements, we improve people’s health by reducing accidents at home and illness associated with poor quality housing like respiratory infections from damp and mould. 

Our Hospital to a Healthier Home service works with hospital staff and patients to make sure patients can be discharged more quickly into a home that is safe, warm and accessible.
