How we're building a better society

We’re guided by a social purpose and aim to make our communities better places to live. We donate at least 1% of pre-tax profits to charitable causes.

Social investment

Improving communities is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is for everyone to have a place fit to call home. To help make this happen we have three key priorities:

  • preventing people from losing their home
  • helping people into a home
  • supporting people to thrive in their home environment.

Community grants

We work closely with housing charities Shelter and St Mungo’s. And we support our people to volunteer and fundraise for charities close to their hearts too.
