Housing and Health Needs Assessment (2024)

The Housing and Health Needs Assessment (H&HNA) for Suffolk in 2024 provides a comprehensive analysis of the county's housing and the impact of housing on the health of residents. This assessment highlights the crucial link between housing conditions and health outcomes, emphasising the importance of safe, affordable, and suitable homes for promoting overall wellbeing.

The H&HNA addresses various aspects of housing in Suffolk, including affordability, energy efficiency, overcrowding, homelessness, and the unique challenges faced by an ageing population.

The H&HNA presents key statistics, identifies areas of concern, and offers recommendations to guide future targeted work across the Suffolk system, including the Suffolk Housing Board.
