Tyfu Tai Cymru selected to progress health, housing & social care collaboration
The UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Research (CaCHE) has announced that Tyfu Tai Cymru is to benefit from its Knowledge Exchange Fund.
The fund has been made available for organisations to undertake short, knowledge exchange projects that will help address challenges facing the UK housing policy and practice communities.
The project led by Tyfu Tai Cymru - part of CIH Cymru - will identify the factors that make a real difference to successful working between those delivering and receiving outstanding services delivered jointly by health, housing and social care colleagues.
The project will gather and analyse this information, developing a model for change that draws on what works well and share this directly with practitioners working across all three sectors, including those in the formative phase of their profession to embed the learning at the earliest opportunity.
Responding to the news Tyfu Tai Cymru manager Catherine May said:
“We’re delighted to be selected as one of the recipients of the Knowledge Exchange Fund. As we’ve been out speaking to housing professionals and tenants across Wales over the past year, we’ve heard about the great work taking place between colleagues in health, housing and social care.
“With so much good practice and enthusiasm to improve people’s health and well-being in Wales we believe our project will help increase consistency, knowledge and support innovation.
“We will seek to spread an understanding of the key things that help projects succeed, working directly with professionals in all three sectors to embed the learning fully in practice both locally and nationally.”
