Greatwell Homes is a housing association that shapes places people are proud to call home. This means we go beyond just building and providing homes to make sure that local communities also have the education, skills, jobs, health, wellbeing and other services they need to thrive. It’s this combination of housing and support that helps people to live well. Our commitment to placeshaping is also reflected in our membership of PlaceShapers: a national network of community-focused housing organisations.
Live proud depends on strong partnerships. For example, in some areas, customers told us that feeling safe is a top priority. So we’ll work with the police and other community safety agencies to improve how we tackle anti-social behaviour and improve security.
To deliver the live proud strategy, we’ll:
- Explore best practice in placeshaping and define our approach
- Improve our understanding of customers’ experiences and aspirations at a community level
- Increase visibility and connection with communities, focusing on areas where we can make the greatest impact
Our four core strategies support our mission and vision, and how we’ll measure success.
