PlaceShapers is a national group of more than 100 community based housing associations which was formed in 2008. Between them they own more than 700,000 homes and provide services to more than one million people.
Saffron Housing Trust is pleased to be a member of PlaceShapers and have signed up to these principles:
Why Saffron joined PlaceShapers:
“We joined PlaceShapers originally as the ethos behind the organisation fitted well with our beliefs about local community involvement and development. Since then PlaceShapers has grown into a much larger and influential version of that original intention that is really listened to and valued in the sector. The key to the on-going success is the ‘self-help’ nature of the organisation that encourages learning and visits between members that helps each member locally to support the communities they work in. We are proud of our on-going involvement in Placeshapers.”
