National Housing Federation Publication
Homelessness and Health for Disadvantaged Groups

Housing and homelessness are inextricably intertwined with health. Unsafe housing increases the risks of health problems and results in otherwise avoidable hospital admissions. The effects of this are often more keenly felt by certain disadvantaged groups. This publication collects and distils analysis and information for some of these groups into a single document. There are six sections in the briefing, each highlighting particular challenges individuals face in accessing appropriate housing and support. Visit Homelessness and Health to see the report.
