Sharing social value impact on Housing Day
The social value of Greater Manchester’s housing providers over the last financial year (April 2019 to March 2020) has been published to show the collective value of housing associations to local communities around Greater Manchester.
The impact graphic has been published to coincide with national #HousingDay (7 October). You can download it here.
Social value is commonly defined by the positive changes people experience in their lives due to the actions of an organisation or business.
We’re one of the members of the Greater Manchester Housing Providers partnership (https://gmhousing.co.uk).
We share the same social value goals and this shows the benefits to communities from what we do as individual providers and working in partnership.
Providers are currently working together to:
- Double the delivery of new homes in Greater Manchester
- Reduce the pressures on health and social care through modern homes for an ageing population
- Invest in more than 1,000 Greater Manchester apprentices
- Support the Greater Manchester economy through procurement processes
- Tackle homelessness through better temporary accommodation.
The Bolton at Home Group is tackling homelessness and promoting ‘Social Dialogue for Human Dignity’, supported by funding from Erasmus+.
This quarter, we thought you’d find our 2020/21 Annual Report more useful than a standalone issue of TAP4.
Why? Because it includes more detail on many of the topics we’d otherwise include in the latest TAP4 issue.
a breakdown of how we spent EVERY PENNY from each pound of rent you'd paid us,
how building NEW BUILD HOMES benefits you, regardless of whether you live in one,
and the exact number of COMPLAINTS we’ve received, as well as some examples of how we’ve learnt from them (such as missed appointments, fly tipping, and our Antisocial Behaviour Policy).
