New group promotes healthier homes

TEAMS from across the North West are joining together to promote healthier housing conditions in the region. The award winning Healthy Homes Programme, initiated by Liverpool City Council and commissioned by public health, aims to prevent ill health and injury resulting from poor quality housing conditions. Now a Housing and Health group, has been set up with similar teams from other organisations including those from Knowsley Council, Wirral Council, Blackpool Coasting Housing and St Helens Council. It aims to let teams pool knowledge and experience and share best practice. It will also enable joint bids to be made for funding including those for Euro funds. It is intended to include other authorities which have similar schemes and hold a national conference in spring next year. "Our Healthy Homes team has been very successful in helping to improve housing conditions, but you can always learn from other people’s experiences. For example, we have recently gained Home Improvement Agency status, meaning we can help elderly people care and repair for their homes. This is a status Blackpool already has so we will be keen to hear about how they operate. And, of course we will be letting other healthy home teams know about what works well for us in Liverpool. Importantly, by joining together we will have much more clout when we are applying for funds which will enable us to improve housing conditions across a wide area." said Councillor Frank Hont, Liverpool City Council cabinet member for housing.
