Housing Associations (Social)
‘Abolish Empty Office Buildings/Blocks’ (AEOB) has been set up to counter the trend for buildings to be kept vacant in pursuit of per-square-foot office rents while people cannot afford to buy or rent homes. The project estimates that within Bristol there are over two million square feet (sixty acres) - of un-let office space. AEOB has been formed to try and redress this balance by creating spaces where people can live, work and socialise – moving away from office “zones” which are dead at night.
We finance housing associations because they provide affordable housing for the people who need it most. This includes homes for the homeless and dignified accommodation for adults and children with physical and learning disabilities.
