About Us

First and foremost, we are a charity that improves the lives of people in need. We do this by funding charitable causes in the UK and influencing change.

At the heart of what we do is a commitment to tackling the root causes of the social issues that lead to disadvantage, poverty and inequality.

Since 2013, our vision has been for everyone in the UK to have access to a decent home that they can afford. Our Decent Affordable Homes strategy gives the detail of how we will deliver on our aim to increase the availability of decent affordable homes for people in need.
