Helping to improve the quality of our local communities is absolutely what South Yorkshire Housing Association is about. We have deliberately restricted our area of operation to ensure that we can make a full contribution to the local and sub-regional place making agenda. Feedback from our local authority partners indicates we have got this right. It has been a pleasure to work with leaders in other associations who share similar values.
Social return on investments
SYHA provides value added services across all our activities. Examples include co-founding Sheffield Money (an alternative to payday lenders), our anti-bullying partnership with the Sheffield Sharks basketball team and our Social Prescribing service in Doncaster which is saving the NHS hundreds of thousands of pounds. Demonstrating the social return on our investment in these kinds of activities is not straightforward. Cause and effect are difficult to prove categorically. However, in our VFM Statement we give the following example for our LiveWell service:
- Our Green Doctor service identified energy savings actions worth £54,707
- 300 people benefitted from our Moments of Joy scheme
- 94% pf 896 customers were helped to maximise their income and ensure they receive the correct benefits
- We helped customers claim £50,348 in Discretionary Housing Benefit
Why we joined PlaceShapers
As soon as we heard that a group had been set up to promote the values and interests of community-focused housing associations, we wanted to be a part of it. We share the PlaceShapers values and have been proud to be a part of the PlaceShaper journey.
