What do you bring to the HH work?
EHO eyes, enthusiasm, leadership skills, willingness to learn, friendliness, common sense and a desire to assist people
What have you learned from being involved in the work?
That little things can make a big difference in a person’s life and the absolute importance of ongoing house maintenance.
In an ideal world what directions, ideas, results would you like to see HH and the Housing for Health work become or achieve?
HfH work achieves an improvement in some of the inequalities that tenants face from their living environment that will in turn positively affect their health.
I’d be keen to see an expansion of HfH work into mainstream social housing to address the similar inequalities I see there.
