The Healthy Housing Hub

The Healthy Housing Hub works to improve the lives of vulnerable people by reducing the risk of poor health and accidents within the home.

We know people can enjoy a better home environment and improved health and well-being when they are comfortable, confident, secure and safe at home.

To achieve this we aim to:

  • improve health - whether that is physical, mental or general well-being
  • reduce longer-term demand on health and social care services.

If you think your housing conditions may harm your health you should contact a health or social care worker and ask to be referred to our service, especially if you are one of the following:

  • an older person
  • living with a disability
  • living with a long-term health condition
  • pregnant or a family with young children

We receive referrals from any health and care workers and a wide range of other public service, community, charity and volunteer services, including:

  • GPs
  • Community Matrons
  • Community Care Workers
  • Carers
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Police
  • Fire Officers
  • Local community groups and volunteers supporting you.

Or if you're not sure, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

You can find out more about how this service could help you by reading Harold's story. Take a look to find out how his life was turned around after he was referred to the Healthy Housing Hub.

Service Evaluation Report

Studies carried out by Derby City's Public Health Directorate in 2013-14 and 2015-16 found that, at one year post intervention, proportionally fewer hub clients were in need of health or care services.
