The UK is experiencing a social infrastructure deficit; people are living longer, the population is growing and there are constraints on suitable land, creating challenges for housing at a time when funding is less available. With the UK population expected to increase by c3 million reaching c69.4 million in 2028 we are mindful of the lack of suitable housing to support this growth.
As investors in social infrastructure ourselves, we recognise that the UK relies heavily on private funding and the growth within the sector is underpinned by an increase in ‘socially minded’ investors. We feel supporting SHP with their mission, complements our existing focus of investing in positive social impact investments.
Our Managing Director, Nigel Ashfield said on the partnership ‘A great deal of thought and consideration goes into choosing our charity partner and with the plethora of fantastic charities to choose from we were in search of a charity which aligned with our own values at TIME. We have made the choice to partner with a charity which complements the positive impact we seek through our investments and recognises the importance not only for intervention but for ongoing support for these individuals suffering homelessness.’
We are particularly excited to focus our internal fundraising efforts to supporting SHP through volunteering days and charity events. In addition, we intend to provide support to individuals seeking a financial education in order to rebuild their lives.
