Briefing paper and data set on housing strategies

NHS Health Scotland has published a briefing paper outlining housing strategies and plans that local authorities produce, and highlighting opportunities for stakeholders to engage so that the contribution that these plans and strategies can make to good health and reduced health inequalities is maximised.


To accompany the briefing paper NHS Health Scotland has released a searchable database containing details of some of the housing strategies and plans each local authority has published.

We can inspire widespread belief that change is possible and that poverty can be solved. And we can mobilise action to do so.
