Benefits for public health
The Local Government Association (LGA)’s Social Determinants of Health and the Role of Local Government (July 2020) states:
“Vulnerable adults may have some of the poorest health outcomes in the community. For example, women with a learning disability have a life expectancy 18 years lower than women without a learning disability. This gap can be reduced through support for housing, educational, employment and social opportunities.”
People who are connected have fewer mental health issues, a longer lifespan and improved physical health.1
Mental health pressures continue to create significant demand in public health services and KeyRing’s uninterrupted and adaptable support helps prevent crisis in a person’s mental wellbeing.
