Centre for Ageing Better report: Good homes for all: A proposal to fix England’s housing

A new report from the Good Home Inquiry has found that a lack of urgency in improving the quality of homes has left residents in danger, as figures showed that excess winter deaths increased by almost 20% from winter 2018-19 to 2019-20. 

This final report from the Good Home Inquiry, supported by the Centre for Ageing Better, examines the problem of unsuitable and low-quality housing in England’s existing housing stock.

The report proposes solutions such as a ‘Good Home Agency’ that provides access to information and advice, as well as a cross-government housing strategy with a ministerial champion to implement it. NHS England, local authorities and Integrated Care Systems (ICS) must also include housing as a key part of preventative strategies to improve population health and address health inequalities.
