Healthier Housing

housingThere is a clear link between health and the homes people live in. Our Healthier Homes work aims to provide you with help and advice to improve your wellbeing.

This ranges from home insulation, how to access services from other organisations, debt advice and helping to 'health proof' your home from cold, damp and mould.

We have undertaken a number of pieces of work which have resulted in our Healthier Homes strategy.

This looks at challenges residents living in private accommodation may face. Evidence shows improving conditions improves people's physical and mental health, along with their well-being. Improving housing options, conditions and neighbourhoods should improve health in Tamworth.

We want to ensure: suitable homes for all; warm and safe homes and independent and healthy lifestyles. Safer safer communities and housing plays a significant part in any community.

We also work closely with private landlords to ensure they know what responsibilities they have. Most landlords are responsible, but we can use enforcement powers to prosecute if they fail to carry out improvements which could be detrimental to your health.
