The support we provide in our communities comes in many forms, including the provision of secure, comfortable and affordable housing for young people and families. Working with the local area teams, we have created three locations where we can now offer individuals and families the chance to live independently in our affordable-rent housing.
Kimber House, Hedge End
We purchased and refurbished a disused care home in Hedge End, Southampton, using a grant from DCLG, to create an 8-bedroom affordable-rent shared house, and a 3-bedroom affordable-rent family home. Housing in Hedge End is often out of the reach of young people who are looking to live independently, and this project was developed to prevent them from having to leave their local area after leaving home, and to get a step onto the housing ladder.
Newport, Isle of Wight
We’ve created three affordable rent family homes through the purchase and refurbishment of a disused care home in Newport on the Isle of Wight, utilising a grant from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
The island is experiencing a severe shortage of affordable rent housing, so this project was developed to meet the housing needs of the local community.
