Funded by Nationwide Building Society, we’re an independent charity that aims to improve the lives of those most in need in the UK through our grant-making and influencing work.
We take a systemic approach and focus on tackling the root causes of social issues, seeking not only to benefit people now but leave a lasting legacy that supports people far into the future.
Our strategy has evolved and changed significantly in the decades since our founding, but our current focus is on housing and making the housing system work for all. Our work is shaped by our Decent Affordable Homes strategy, whose vision is for everyone who needs it to have access to a safe, secure home.More about us
