Improving housing management to enhance health outcomes: SBRI competition

08/04/2019

Leeds city council and city of York council are committed to providing housing of the right quality, type, tenure and affordability. The councils understand that good quality housing has associated health and wellbeing benefits. Through cyclical maintenance and investment programmes they ensure their housing stock meets the needs of tenants.

 

It can be difficult to identify lifestyle or environmental issues within properties that might have a detrimental effect on a tenant’s health and wellbeing. The councils want to know if new technological solutions can help effectively monitor environmental conditions within housing stock and provide information to tenants. This could help influence behaviour change and improve their health and wellbeing.

 

Successful applicants must be prepared to spend time in Leeds and York working with local authorities and tenants.

 

This is phase 1 of a 2-phase competition. Phase 2 is dependent on the success of this phase.
