As part of the Communities Evidence Programme, this ScHARR team, also including Professor John Brazier and Tessa Peasgood, looked at the evidence linking housing with wellbeing. We used a rapid scoping review methodology to look at what had already been published linking housing with wellbeing.

Our report has now been published online here, with a helpful Policy Briefing available here.

Following on from this, the team, along with Duncan Chambers from the Public Health section and Mark Clowes from IR will be working on a systematic review, looking at the evidence for the impact of housing interventions on the wellbeing of individuals and communities from vulnerable groups.
