Starts at Home is a great campaign that highlights the importance of enabling people to live as independently as possible in their own home - helping with their overall wellbeing.
Whether they are older people living with the support they need to stay healthy and out of hospital, whether they are people with learning difficulties or with mental health needs supportive housing helps people to live their lives to the full.
Investing in supportive housing not only improves peoples quality of life but saves money in the longer term by helping to prevent hospital admissions, and potentially demands on social care. It really is a win win for all - which is why I am delighted to support this campaign.
