The Hyde Group is one of the largest housing associations in England, owning or managing about 50,000 homes for more than 100,000 customers in London, the south east of England and neighbouring areas.
They provide homes for those in the communities that cannot otherwise afford one. This helps them improve their life chances, realise their potential, enjoy their environment, work meaningfully and contribute to society. In their 2050 Strategic Plan, A great home for everyone, they have committed to using a mixed-funding model to develop homes in the future, including grant and debt funding and partnerships and joint ventures with housebuilders, local authorities, other housing associations and third party institutional investors. The Hyde Group are supporting this conference because they believe the social housing sector must adopt new approaches to investment and financing, if we are to ‘turn the dial’ to address the severe housing shortage and give more people a home.
