Yorkshire Housing provide more than 18,000 affordable homes across Yorkshire, and employ over 800 people from across the region. The Yorkshire Housing Group was created in 2008 and today the landlord provides homes and services to thousands of families across the region. Employment and training is at the heart of Yorkshire Housing’s ambition for everyone to have the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford, and to ensure customers maintain their independence and have the help needed to succeed.
Yorkshire Housing has a strong track record in supporting over 350 customers over the last two years and aims to achieve £10m worth of Social Value through community investment activities. Yorkshire Housing’s community investment manager, James Haigh, explains: “Yorkshire Housing’s strategic focus is to enable people to be independent and succeed in whatever they do.
Over the next three years, we’re planning to help 1,000 customers into training and employment. “A key part of this work is to help customers and sustain their tenancies, and with Communities that Work and the network of other housing organisations we can create new opportunities for our customers and communities.”
