People experiencing homelessness are among the most vulnerable and isolated in our society, with the poorest health outcomes. Traditional systems of health and care often struggle to meet their needs. Consequently, they are more likely to die young, with an average age of death of 45.4 for men and 43.2 for women (ONS, 2021).
TPHC’s Homeless Health programme brings together London’s ICBs, regional partners and third-sector organisations to improve access to, experience of, and outcomes from health care, for people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness, in order to improve health and wellbeing, reduce health inequalities and contribute to an end to homelessness. Together with these partners, we strive to prevent people from experiencing homelessness, and where prevention is not possible, that it’s brief, rare and non-recurring.
