Our Work in Housing

Our housing programmes work with housing associations and local authorities to increase and sustain tenant involvement, tackle disadvantage and develop stronger, more connected neighbourhoods.

Some of our housing partners

Engaging Tenants & Residents: Our work in the Housing Sector

We work across a range of housing settings, including general needs housing and supported housing. Time Credits enable housing organisations to work with tenants on developing better financial resilience, digital inclusion, skills & employment. Our programmes also support Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) who are working to develop estates and services that are managed more co-productively, with tenants shaping and contributing to services & assets such as communal space.

Going for it at Pencader Family Centre!

Elaine has some simple advice for any organisations that are thinking of getting involved in a Time Credit Network and says “Go for it! You have nothing to lose but a lot to gain. Time credits are a really valuable tool to help all organisations which have volunteers as an important part of their makeup. The Time Credit project has made a big difference to our family centre and we are very grateful to Carmarthenshire Housing Services and Spice for introducing us to it.”
