Where we live and call home matters hugely to our health and wellbeing. A settled home is critical to our sense of sense of self and wellbeing and provides is a foundation from which people can flourish. Where that home is in an attractive, safe and connected community with accessible and welcoming services, the impact can be enormous.
The activities of housing organisations influence people’s everyday lives and the places they live. The homes we build and the services we provide contribute to delivering national health and wellbeing outcomes as well as wider ambitions to create a fairer, healthier and wealthier Scotland.
The integration of Health and Social Care brings significant opportunities and responsibilities. Few doubt that change is needed to ensure services are person centred, work coherently together, and quality is sustained in the face of demographic and financial challenges. More than ever there will be a need for innovation, rapid testing and effective spread of new methods.
The Network is working with partners to help the sector meet these challenges. The following pages are an example of this - hosting a range of good practice, case study and guidance documents. Soon the archive will accommodate useful legacy items; such as an extensive catalogue of Joint Improvement Team practice notes. Dive in and explore!
