Social purpose is fundamental to Hyde and goes beyond providing homes and being a landlord, it’s also about creating vibrant and sustainable communities.
We’re well-aware of the financial pressures many of our customers are under, and have pledged that no-one will be evicted because of financial hardship. In return, we ask customers to work with us to help them, and to get in touch as soon as they feel they’re getting into financial difficulty.
We work with partner organisations to build resilient, thriving communities where people want to live. Additional external funding supports projects in higher-need areas, tackling everything from anti-social behaviour to isolation of older people.
