Making homes Healthy Homes
Healthy Homes focuses on improving housing conditions to make homes warmer, drier and safer whilst helping to prevent respiratory conditions, infectious conditions and acute rheumatic fever.
Whānau living with children from the ages of 0-4 years old may be eligible for home assessments and a range of possible interventions.
Whānau with young persons up to 19 years of age with a relevant medical condition may be referred by a health professional.
Housing needs assessment focuses on insulation, heating, crowding, dampness, bedding, floor covering, working with whānau to improve health outcomes and reduce hospitalisation, and develop housing solutions with whānau.
Also check out our next DIY in the Whare programme which teaches communities the do-it-yourself skills needed to improve and future-proof their homes.
