The right home and neighbourhood environment can maintain health, improve wellbeing and prevent physical and mental illness.

Digital technology can contribute to the basic infrastructure required for a successful delivery.

Topics include:

  • Build on the recent MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) between Health and Housing entitled “Improving Health & Care through the Home”

  • Future needs and the potential for digital technology
