Housing for health and wellbeing accreditation

Recognising good practice

With the emerging health agenda it is now more important than ever for housing organisations to be able to demonstrate how housing can contribute to the health and wellbeing of our communities. Our housing for health and wellbeing accreditation will help to demonstrate the impact your organisation has on the health and wellbeing agenda by assessing your approach and the services that you offer to your residents. The outcome of the assessment will determine if your organisation qualifies for a good practice award and CIH consultancy will provide support if further work is needed to reach the required standard.     

We will assess your organisation based on evidence from a range of qualitative and quantitative data, focusing on the following areas:Health and wellbeing accreditation logo

  • Understanding residents' needs and aspirations (improving life chances)
  • Environmental improvements
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Reducing health inequalities
  • Helping people ageing well
  • Improving homes and neighbourhoods
  • Contributing to health and wellbeing boards
  • Improving health and wellbeing outcomes for your residents
