Ethnicity, health and the private rented sector

NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 28/11/2014 - 17:30

Racial Equality Foundation - 
The link between poor housing and poor health is well documented and extremely complex, with numerous confounding factors having direct and indirect impacts on both physical and mental health. Evidence shows that homes in the private rented sector in England are in poorer physical condition compared to owner-occupied or social rented sector homes, whilst the recession has led to rising levels of insecurity within the sector, which may also have an impact on the health of residents. While the likelihood of living in the private rented sector has grown for all demographic groups, black and minority ethnic households, younger people and recent migrants are over-represented both in the private rented sector and in homes which are in poor physical conditions. This paper looks at the relationship between poor housing and health for black and minority ethnic communities and also considers recent policy responses and practical developments.
