Housing and Health

What does HACT Health do?

Built on a collaboration between HACT and Common Cause Consulting, we support housing providers who wish to work with the NHS, and NHS providers who wish to work with housing.

We provide the following services: 

  • Evaluation: if you want to engage successfully with the NHS, you need evidence that what you’re doing works. Well framed, reputable evidence is critical in starting conversations with colleagues in the health sector.
  • Engage: If you want to engage with the health sector, but aren’t sure where to start or how to do it, then this service is for you. We will help you understand the complexities of health, identify new developments and opportunities, and help you explain what you do in a language that will provoke interest. 
  • Integrate: If you think working with the housing sector is simply about selling land so they can build keyworker homes, think again. Housing associations are about more than just homes. They are significant investors in their local communities, deliver numerous health and wellbeing initiatives, and participate in primary and secondary disease prevention.
  • Inspire: We connect housing and health, whether in person through roundtables, in running event or on paper through White Papers, research articles and think pieces.
