As a developing housing association, we’re helping to tackle the shortage of good quality affordable housing. Our recent development programmes have provided many new homes both for the people most in need of housing and those who would otherwise not be able to afford to own their own home, and we have ambitious plans to build 1000 homes between 2012 and 2020.
Investing in our communities
For us, helping people in housing need and supporting successful communities goes way beyond bricks and mortar. Since 2012, we have encouraged and supported a number of new social enterprises to get up and running, and we have invested in our community area through our Options Studies and Community Development Fund.
As a community owned business based on the Gateway Principles, the ethos of PlaceShapers chimes with our vision to provide 'better homes, friendlier communities ....Together'. A key part of our Business Plan 2016-2020 is to build community capacity, and our members are at the heart of our decision making. By working with like-minded people we believe we can provide innovative solutions to improve the quality of life of our tenants and leaseholders.
