Halton Housing is delighted to reveal its social value impact figures for 2018/2019. 

As well as ensuring that its homes are safe and secure, by working in partnership with local contractors, charities and social enterprises, Halton Housing plays an active part in the local community to ensure it has a strong social impact. 

There are a number of recognised models for measuring social impact. Halton Housing uses the HACT Social Value Model. This model uses values to measure the impact of activities from employment through to health, from this Halton Housing learns how and where social value is generated most effectively, from in-house projects to the value generated by partners. It is a straightforward way of attaching cash values to social activities that are traditionally more difficult to quantify.  

Highlights include: 

  • Over £7,000 awarded to community-based projects through our Helping Hands initiative 
  • Our Welfare Benefits Team helped customers gain over £2m for customers through Housing Benefit backdates, Discretionary Housing Payments, Capability Funding, Council Tax Reductions, Carers Allowance, Tax Credits, Pension Credits, savings on utilities and supporting customers applying for Universal Credit 
  • Over £4.5m in overall social impact from Halton Housing 

Cheryl McCabe, Halton Housing corporate social responsibility officer said: “We’re delighted to share our social value impact for 2018/2019. It’s been another excellent year for Halton Housing and the figures speak for themselves. We strive to continually improve our services, local facilities and support for many local organisations and groups.” 

Halton Housing has produced a handy infographic to show results of its social value impact which can be viewed here.
