This is a seminar presented by BMENational, the Race Equality Foundation and Housing Diversity Network.
What is it about?
The event will focus on the intersection between housing, health and ethnicity. There will be a range of presentations, including exploring some of the steps housing associations have taken to address health inequalities. They will start to explore pro-equality solutions including the role of housing providers and the third sector in addressing the challenges of the next decade.
There is a great deal of evidence highlighting that people from minority ethnic groups experience poorer health than the overall UK population. The situation is compounded by the higher levels of housing stress experienced by people from minority backgrounds.
A 10 Year Update
It is now 10 years since the publication of the Marmot Review. The original report highlighted the need to take action across the social determinants of health, and called for progress to be made on a clear set of policy objectives.
A 10 year update to the work will examine how health inequalities have changed and what progress has been made on tackling the social determinants of health including housing, places, and communities.
The seminar will be suitable for those working in health, housing or race equality.
