The final event in our series of events looking at how the NHS can learning from housing, this session focuses on community development.
Like the NHS, housing associations make a huge contribution to local economies, and play a significant role in economic development. From construction and building homes, through to supporting local enterprise growth and business start-ups, housing associations blend economic development with wider social development to deliver major local regeneration and support thriving communities. We will explore some of the ways social landlords have achieved this, and what the NHS can do when working in partnership with others.
