Simon has been working to positively impact the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people for 20 years. He has focussed on providing accommodation and support within the voluntary sector. The opportunity to understand the potential of impact investment to improve people’s lives with Big Society Capital’s Homes Fellowship was too good to miss.
Simon sings in a blues band, races occasional triathlons and loves sustainable travel.
The UK’s housing crisis is a universal problem, with an inadequate supply of high quality, affordable homes leading to rising levels of homelessness and people living in unsuitable accommodation. Home ownership is becoming increasingly unaffordable, and for many is now only a pipedream.
