Coast & Country’s core business is to improve people’s lives by providing affordable homes for those who need them. This in itself brings long term benefits to the communities in which we live and work in. Beyond housing, we pride ourselves in adding social value to our communities, delivering a wide range of services that support and enhance people’s quality of life.
Social value is incredibly important to Coast & Country, and is a crucial factor in the way we conduct our business. Social value describes how through our business activities, we work towards improving the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the people living in our communities. These benefits can cover a wide range of activities, including the creation of apprenticeships and jobs, sub-contracting to local social enterprises, or simply working with residents to create a community garden.
We work hard to support, improve and develop our communities. As a result, we endeavour to work with organisations that share our commitment to social value and can work in partnership with us to improve the wellbeing of the people living in our communities.
We call our approach to securing social value ‘Chain ReACTion,’ and we’re keen to work with partners who can support us to achieve our aims.
"The objectives of PlaceShapers are very much aligned to our own. We will all have common agendas and I believe we can be a strong lobby."
