Today, there is a widely recognised chronic shortage of social housing in England and Wales, with approximately 4.5 million people having qualified for social housing and currently sitting on local authority housing waiting lists.
We invest in new housing to facilitate Shared Ownership and low-cost rental homes for individuals and key workers in communities throughout the UK.
Our specialist team partners with housebuilders, local authorities and registered providers to deliver much needed, high-quality, new-build developments; and provide a superior service to our residents.
“The supply of new social homes has become almost frozen”
– Polly Neate, CEO Shelter. 2019
We are committed to investing in suitable, long-term, housing solutions for the most vulnerable members of society. We generate long-term, inflation-linked income from an experienced, government-funded tenant.
“The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” – Gandhi.
The dedicated team have key relationships with housing providers and private managers within the sector – securing long-term agreements with greater ease.
Our for-profit Registered Provider Park Properties Housing Association owns and manages a portfolio of affordable, new-build homes of all tenures throughout England.
“The UK is in the midst of a housing crisis with an estimated 320,000 people in the UK classified as homeless and 295,000 in temporary accommodation”
