University of South Wales Housing and Health Consensus Meeting: Setting Research Priorities for Wales

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising an event


In July of 2023 USW Psychology were awarded 10 months funding through the Knowledge Exchange and Innovation fund (KEIF) to establish a Housing and Health Centre of Excellence (CoE). The purpose of the Housing and Health Centre of Excellence is to build on the growing call for research underpinning the impact of housing on health in Wales (Robets, 2023, Homes for health and well-being). It also aims to address the need for more effective collaboration across the sector, as outlined by Morgan’s (2023) Bevan exemplar report. The Centre of Excellence will bring together a cross disciplinary, multi-stakeholder network to collaboratively explore housing and health from a psychological perspective across policy, research, and practice.

In November of 2023 the Housing and Health Centre of Excellence convened a consensus event with key individuals from practice, academia, government, statutory and the third sector organisations to set current collaborative research priorities for Wales.

The event was attended by delegates from across the sector in Wales and the organisers employed two different consensus techniques to support the delegates to arrive at a series of priority research areas as well as chairing discussions about how to operationalise and pursue these research priority areas.
