Housing and Sport: Improving wellbeing and providing better value for public money
We held a shared learning seminar on how housing and sport are key to improving wellbeing with Community Housing Cymru, Public Health Wales, Welsh Local Government Association, Welsh NHS Confederation, Sport Wales, Welsh Government and Good Practice Wales.
Wellbeing is more than just health. The quality of both housing and physical activity has a major impact. This seminar brought together experts that have combined aspects of housing and physical activity to provide substantial benefits to the wellbeing of the people of Wales which reduces on-going costs.
There are major changes afoot in the public sector, with the Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill meaning that organisations will have to evidence how they are balancing short term and long term needs, taking an integrated approach; involving those with an interest; acting in collaboration; and adopting preventive thinking.
