Housing

Having a home which is safe and affordable is generally considered to be a basic need. Stable surroundings help to maintain health and wellbeing. Poor housing or homelessness can contribute to the development of mental health problems or can make existing mental health problems more difficult to manage.

There are Housing Departments in all the Districts and Boroughs in Kent some of which still own and manage their housing stock. Housing Advice is available on all aspects of housing.
