Homes for Good, the UK’s first social enterprise letting agency.
The Big Issue’s Hannah Westwater meets the founder of the UK’s first social enterprise letting agent.
Homes for Good finds and creates homes for people on low incomes in Glasgow, with half its clients on housing benefits and the investment arm of the business renovating homes to plug the social housing gap. The values-driven business works to make sure both landlords and tenants get a transparent, ethical and kind service, subverting the reputation of letting agents everywhere.
