Corporate Social Responsibility

As well as ensuring that our homes are safe and secure, we play an active part in our local community. As the largest landlord in borough, we recognise our responsibility. We work with local contractors, charities and social enterprises to ensure that our estates and neighbourhoods are places we’re proud to live in. We strike to continually improve our services and local facilities and support many local organisations and groups.

Power in Partnership

Established in 2011, Power in Partnership (PIP) is a Halton based social enterprise, which works with disadvantaged young people in the Cheshire towns of Runcorn, Widnes and Warrington, by providing them with the skills and training to increase their life and work chances.

We have been working with PIP since September 2012 by providing young people aged 16 to 25 with paid and voluntary opportunities across different departments throughout the Trust. This has covered areas such as void properties and gardens, large landscaping jobs, plastering, painting, decorating and house clearances.

The idea behind the partnership is to provide work experience to low skilled young people who are disadvantaged or disengaged in the community and to inspire and create aspirations where previously there were none.

Nominated Charities

Each year we choose a local nominated charity to work with, offering intensive support in a variety of ways. We have been supporting local charities since 2005. We hold regular fundraising events for our charities, as well as entering high profile events in aid of raising money and awareness for charities such as: the English Half Marathon, and the Halton Five Mile road race. We also provide support in business areas such as PR, finance and corporate governance. Our nominated charities are key partners for us, and we actively encourage our customers and stakeholders to support our nominated charities.

Our nominated charity for 2017-2018 is Halton Autistic Family Support, otherwise known as HAFS. HAFS support Halton families with a child or young adult with Autism by providing them with a wealth of support services. We will be raising money throughout the year and offering support wherever possible for HAFS. We have many fundraising activities lined up, including marathons!

Previous Nominated Charities

We have previously worked with MIND, Halton Haven Hospice, Runcorn and Widnes Cancer Support and the Alzheimer’s Society following a successful, year on year employee vote.

We supported Halton Haven Hospice for five years, and donated the equivalent of £100,000 through fundraising activities, and practical help. The Trust still strive to continue to support the Hospice where possible.

We also work closely with the local credit union and Citizens Advice Bureau, promoting their services to customers as well as offering on-going support and resource sharing.  We have supported two food banks in Runcorn and Widnes, and we still work closely with them as the service is continually expanding.

To see how you can become our next nominated charity, or to suggest a charity to Halton Housing, please contact Cheryl McCabe to request an application form.
