    DescriptionPsychologists at the University of South Wales (USW) have established a ‘Housing and Health Centre of Excellence’ to address the growing call for research into the impact of housing on health in Wales.

    Funded by Knowledge Exchange and Innovation fund (KEIF), the Centre also aims to address the need for more effective collaboration across the sector. It 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, the Centre convened a consensus event with key individuals from practice, academia, government, statutory, and the third sector organisations to set research priorities for Wales.
