GCPH Briefing Paper 52: Housing through Social Enterprise

Rolfe S & Garnham L (2017) GCPH Briefing Paper 52: Housing through Social Enterprise. Briefing Paper, 52. Glasgow Centre for Population Health.

A scoping study explored the potential role of social enterprises in protecting and enhancing the health of low-income and otherwise vulnerable households in Glasgow. We consider how different kinds of social enterprises operating in the housing sector might work to improve access to affordable, stable and good quality homes for those in need. We begin by outlining the level of housing need in Glasgow, the barriers to quality housing for low-income households and the impact of housing and health, before describing a number of ways in which social enterprises have the potential to improve public health. We finish by outlining the next steps in this programme of research.
