The housing market crisis is affecting people all over the UK. High quality, affordable housing is in short supply, while there are rising levels of homelessness, people living in unsuitable accommodation and people unable to access the support they need. Home ownership is increasingly unaffordable, leaving many people in the private rental market with unsecure tenancies.
We look for housing ideas to improve lives and help address the root causes of housing inequality by changing the system. This includes unlocking greater amounts of impact-led capital from institutional investors and helping scale or replicate business models creating better outcomes.
We invest in buying or developing homes for vulnerable and disadvantaged people, such as housing for people with learning disabilities or who are homeless. We also invest in social property funds to increase the supply and quality of affordable and social housing and the private rented sector.
