Annual Public Health Report – Foundations for Wellbeing
Director of Public Health Report 2014.
The Director’s report is focused on housing and its impact on health;
the findings are linked to the three key WSCC priorities of Start of Life,
Economy and Later Life.
Housing is fundamental to our health and wellbeing. Different stages in life present different challenges to individuals, families,
communities, planners and services; some challenges require nationally led solutions, others can be tackled locally.
In this report, three main challenges
have been identified for each life stage and are broadly grouped into issues relating to supply, condition and the mitigation of adverse effects.
