Healthy Home

The quality of a home has a substantial impact on health; a warm, dry and secure home is associated with better health.  Research suggests that poor housing is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases and depression and anxiety.  Housing-related hazards that increase the risk of illness include damp, mould, excess cold and structural defects that increase the risk of an accident (such as poor lighting, or lack of stair handrails).
