Social return on investments
The vision of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) is to create a community where people choose to live and work, having pride in their homes and services.
As a social business, WCHG deliver numerous benefits to the people of Wythenshawe, above and beyond providing a home. Measuring the social impact reveals the difference these benefits make to the people of Wythenshawe.
For the 2014/15 financial year we evaluated our social impact across five key themes of work:
- Financial Inclusion; we offer tenants advice on budgeting, welfare rights and managing debt. The service aims to support tenants in keeping their homes, prevent evictions and reduce costs.
- Employment and Skills; we offers a range of support to help local residents develop and increase their skills and to move into sustained employment.
- Youth and Education; we provide a range of services for children and young people including after school clubs, youth clubs and technology learning programmes.
- Health and Wellbeing; we provide a range of services designed to improve the health and wellbeing of local people including supporting community centres, providing sports and leisure activities and encouraging volunteering.
- Community Safety; our community safety strategy aims to improve the quality of life for local residents by helping to reduce antisocial behaviour and crime.
We also evaluated our investment in local employees (46% live in the local area) and the benefits of bringing our planned roofing service in-house; creating more jobs and opportunities for local people.
More detail on the activities, outcomes and social value delivered on each theme is available in our Social Impact Report at http://www.wchg.org.uk/socialimpact2015/
