Community investment

We believe community investment is key to supporting our customers and their communities.   

Our approach to investment aims to achieve the following objectives through our Better Days Programme of offers, opportunities and services:

  • Social – We support communities to become safe and inviting places to live, with activities and amenities that engage everyone. Communities can generate ideas to improve their neighborhoods through digital and social networks and volunteering.

  • Economic – We work with individuals and the wider community to encourage enterprise, ambition, skills and employment opportunities.

  • Environmental – We promote a better quality of life through our investment in the quality of our homes. We provide homes that are affordable to heat and can be changed as our customers’ needs change throughout their lives.

Our priorities for investing in the community are around four themes:

  • money
  • employment, skills and enterprise
  • well-being
  • digital services

Our ambition is to invest £30 million into our communities by 2020. This includes direct investment and investment through external partners and funding streams.
