Here we reflect on HACT Chief Executive Andrew Van Doorn’s blog in which he outlined the third pillar of the Centre for Excellence in Community investment: insight. Originally published in October 2018, his words are still relevant a year on.
This year, for the first time, we will be hosting the first national conference dedicated to community investment
The Welsh Government’s rent settlement announcement at the beginning of the year was greeted with dismay by many social housing providers in Wales. It has already resulted in many assessing cost-cutting strategies, and may result in a significant reduction in community investement activities by some Welsh housing associations.
The evaluation of the DOSH programme is based on answering the following question: is digital support, therapeutic mentoring or a combination of these elements more effective in improving the financial capability of A2Dominion residents?
The Centre for Excellence in Community Investment is an initiative from HACT. We partner with organisations across the social housing sector to drive value for residents and communities. We do this through insight-led products and services that encourage innovation and foster collaboration.
If you need help developing a community investment strategy, measuring your social value or demonstrating the business case for community investment, we can help make it happen. Get in touch and let’s start the conversation.
