Could 2017 prove to be a bumper year for UK housing association organisations? We discuss current market performance, partnership developments in the pipeline and what more can be done to improve output.
There's no denying that the Housing White Paper included a few sticking plasters, but it did also indicate several markers for more drastic industry change.
Market growth guide: which housing sectors will take the spotlight in 2017?
LD Events actively supports 'The Passage' (www.passage.org.uk), which seeks to combat homelessness and its causes.
The Passage provides resources to encourage, inspire and challenge homeless people to transform their lives. The Victoria-based charity believes in a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out’, addressing root causes of someone becoming homeless in order to help them break the cycle for good. The Passage offers a wide range of services to help London’s homeless, such as operating London’s largest voluntary sector day centre, undertaking local street outreach work, managing a direct access hostel, facilitating access to health professionals and providing education/training. The Passage has a 3:1 volunteer to staff ratio, so approximately 90p in every £1 of funds generated goes directly to its services.
