At its annual conference, the National Housing Federation announced that housing associations throughout the UK will be developing innovative ideas to address the nation's largest future social challenges.
Creating our Future, the National Housing Federation’s new programme, will unite housing associations across the UK to develop products and services that bring about positive change on a national scale.
The National Housing Federation is partnering with Big Society Capital, the noted independent social investor, on the challenge. The latter has recognised the ability of Britain’s housing associations to implement meaningful social change across the country.
Big Society Capital will invest up to £15m for the best, most investment-worth idea that Creating our Future generates. The winners must be innovative in scope, have a positive social impact, and be sustainable financially. They must also have a sound business model.
