Community Impact Week is here

16 November 2015

Community Impact Week is all about highlighting the tremendous difference that housing associations make to neighbourhoods across the country.

There are a wide range of ways we support communities and neighbourhoods, but here are just some of them.

Health and wellbeing

Supporting the health and wellbeing of our customers is very important to us. With the number of people aged over 85 growing rapidly, and the number of older people with care needs predicted to rise 61% by 2032, there is no better time than to emphasis our health and wellbeing programmes.

Our ‘Movers and Shakers’ programme gives people over 55 a chance to not only keep fit, but also socialise and make new friends over lunch and a cup of tea.

Find out more about the programme here.

Community improvement / better neighbourhoods

Our community fund is a way of creating better neighbourhoods and communities, by promising £100,000 every year over five years (until 2016) to spend on projects or facilities that improve the quality of life for our residents.

We’ve invested more than £175,000 so far, with a whole range of other great projects that we can support. Find out more about the community fund here.

Investing in people

We want to tackle unemployment and financial exclusion in our communities by helping people to find jobs, manage their money effectively and gain life-changing skills.

That’s why we’re supporting local enterprises like the ToolShed that help young people to learn the skills and qualifications they need to start a career in construction. Find out more about the ToolShed here.

Greener living

Over the past decade, average energy bills have increased by around 135%. We want to make sure we help our customers with these increasing prices by improving the energy efficiency of their homes.

Last year we invested £2 million improving energy efficiency in our homes. By doing so, we’ve managed to reduce energy bills for tenants in some of our homes by £270 a year.
