Good Homes

Population Outcomes: People in Suffolk and North East Essex have Good Homes

Good quality housing has a substantial impact on health; a warm, dry and secure home is associated with better health. Having a good home is having a home that gives some security of tenancy, is free from physical hazards, free from cold and damp and is not of such a high cost that it creates poverty.
