HACT believes housing provides a foundation for changing people's lives for the better. We seek to influence housing practice and policy to transform lives and strengthen the resilience of communities
Our Reach In project works with UK-based refugees to find work placements within the housing sector to help them gain in-valuable experience in the workplace, and help them to engage with the wider community.
Find out how our work helped refugees like Nadine and Priscilla.
Our Self-Help Housing project works with smaller community groups to bring empty properties back into working use. With funding being distributed through the DCLG, HACT are working with grant recieving groups to ensure they maximise the potential of the money recieved and can actively engage and exchange ideas with other groups within the network.
Over the years, HACT has worked on a wide variety of projects with partners and agencies which look to address the housing issues faced the elderly, migrants and refugees and the disabled.
Discover how our projects have helped people with support needs, like Andy and Kate.
Helping through our action learning programmes
The overall aim of our new action-learning programmes is to enable housing associations to better understand their communities more so they can begin to interpret how they can better serve the needs of their tennants and utlise opportunities within the community.
