Foundations Integration toolkit

The latest version of the Foundations Housing, Health & Care Integration Toolkit  is now available on the Foundations website

The update includes links to evidence in the form of:

•         The environmental burden of disease associated with inadequate housing – World Health organisation

•         HRSRS Guidance – DCLG

•         Effective Strategies & Interventions: Environmental health and the private housing sector – CIEH/University of Greenwich /NICE Guidance

The toolkit was developed and launched in December 2013 during a series of seminars facilitated by Foundations on the Better Care Fund.

It takes as its starting point a housing risk/ issue framed in the kind of language commonly employed in such documents as Joint strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). The tool then illustrates how Home Improvement Agency / Handyperson service interventions can mitigate such risks, and aligns them to specific outcomes in the frameworks of Adult Social Care, Public Health, and NHS England. A supporting evidence section provides hyperlinks to reports and other documents to support the case for housing interventions.
