How we get involved

Communities

The Places Foundation funded the Feeling Good project in Norwich, a partnership between Leeway and one of our affordable housing providers — Cotman Housing Association. The project delivers physical activity to women and girls aged 16 and over who are domestic abuse survivors, helping women to build their confidence, resilience and wellbeing through social interaction and connecting to their community. It aims to support more than 330 women and girls over three years.

Investment

Our affordable housing community investment fund is supporting 24 projects that are delivering employment and training support, tenancy sustainability activities and youth diversionary activities. In Hull, for example, a partnership has been developed with the city council and Arts Council England to provide community arts activities involving customers in the Springbank area. To date, over 250 people have engaged in the project.
