M·E·L Research is a leading supplier of STAR surveys and provides expert consultancy to housing associations and social landlords.  We also provide research, evaluation, and consultancy services across the public and third sector, including healthcare and public health. We understand the important links between housing and public health and the continued agenda to improve partnership working in the two sectors. We were interested to learn more about how housing providers are influencing the health and wellbeing of their tenants. We designed a short poll to send all our housing contacts in January 2015, and we heard back from 56 housing associations.

We asked our housing contacts about the types of health initiatives they are involved in and if they receive any external funding.  We also wanted to understand the barriers to those who are not involved in initiatives.  We learned that 72% (45) of those who responded have or are planning to offer health related activities or have a health programme.  For the full top-line results, click here.
