Metropolitan, The Young Foundation and Olmec partner up for social enterprise
A social enterprise partnership between Metropolitan, The Young Foundation and Olmec completed its work at the end of 2013. Housing Associations are social enterprises seeking to create social value. By linking with our diverse communities and tapping into their energy and know how at the local level, we can work together and create vibrant economies. These two publications record the story of the project and present some of the social entrepreneurs we have supported.

Housing and Migration Network destitution pack
The Housing and Migration Network has launched a destitution pack highlighting how housing associations and charities can work together to provide short-term housing, as well as the support needed, for destitute asylum seekers and other migrants in the UK. The destitution pack has been developed to help in particular, destitute asylum seekers who have no access to public funds but who have some prospect of regularising their status. The pack is based on a Hope Housing model developed by Hope Projects in Birmingham.
