Our Chief Executive, Glenn Heaton, appeared alongside Danny Wilson-Dodd, Head of Lending at Big Issue Invest, at this conference examining the growing world of social investment. The event was organised by Homeless Link and showcased ways in which different types of social lending had supported projects relieving homelessness. Glenn and Danny focussed on PHASES’ two major renovation projects in Brockley, where two large properties, both empty for over 20 years, had been renovated and brought back into use. The properties now provide five flats for families who had formerly been in overcrowded and substandard accommodation. These projects had been supported by lending of £210k from the Big Issue Invest and generated a number of interested questions from the audience and afterwards.
