Upcoming Event: Health and Wellbeing in Homes in Manchester

26 September 2016
Upcoming Event: Health and Wellbeing in Homes in Manchester



In partnership with PRP and UK-GBC, The Housing Forum will discuss the benefits of homes designed for health and well-being on 10th October in Manchester. Following the successful launch of UK-GBC’s “Health and Wellbeing in Homes” report earlier this year, this event will provide an overview of the evidence linking design features in the home and neighbourhood to better health and wellbeing outcomes for residents.


The report seeks to inspire designers and developers and landlords of both new and refurbished homes to push for healthier homes and attempts to define what makes a healthy home and neighbourhood.  


The event will also feature a session on “Taking charge together“, which talks about how the plans are being shaped for health and well-being in Greater Manchester following the devolution for health, social care and local government.


Places are limited, so please register your interest in the event by email to Charlotta.Andresson@housingforum.org.uk by Friday 30th September.
