Being Healthier

In a modern world, there are many opportunities for people to be unhealthy and no one is perfect.

Sustain & Enable is here to help encourage and support people to make healthy, sustainable choices for themselves and their families and to help communities build resilience. 

In New Zealand, we know that the state of our housing can be linked to many of our worst health issues, and that this comes at huge social, environmental and economic cost. Some of the worst indicators are cold, damp, and presence of mould in many of our homes including some new builds.

Benefits of living in a healthier home

An ever-increasing library of research has proven that in healthier homes, people achieve much better levels of:

  • Happiness
  • Interpersonal relationships with partners, family and friends
  • Success at work and in other areas of their lives
  • physical health, and
  • emotional and mental health and well-being.

We are here to help. We make our Healthier Home Assessments an affordable entry point for households so that we can start a conversation with you, and help you reach your health and well-being goals. Please contact us to book a consultation today.
