The challenge

The UK’s housing market crisis is affecting people all over the country, with an inadequate supply of high quality, affordable homes leading to rising levels of homelessness, people living in unsuitable accommodation, people unable to access the support they need while home ownership is becoming increasingly unaffordable.

Social investment has great potential to change this and to contribute to a more inclusive housing market.


Our aim is to test, replicate and scale innovative housing models, attracting additional capital into this area in order to deliver secure and affordable homes for those in need, including the most vulnerable people in society.
