Housing Associations

In a report 'Building Futures' published by the National Housing Federation it has described how last year (2011/12) Housing Associations throughout the country helped to improve the lives of over 8 million people with more than half a billion pounds of community investment.

The details are as follows:

- £80 million went to helping people into work

- £73 million went to help people with learning and skills

- £74 million to health and well being projects

- £16 million to help people beat fuel poverty

- £100 million towards building safer and stronger communities

- £75 million to help improve green spaces

- £6 million was invested in IT centres (this was over 5 years).

But they are not doing it alone - they are working with national and local government, charities and other organisations.
