North Star Housing Group

North Star Housing Group and Teesside University have partnered up for a project that measures the value of giving.

The organisation aims to strengthen their communities through targeted funding and support. Last year North Star helped fund around 35 projects, including working with children and young people, providing training and work opportunities, community-led housing schemes and education projects.

Psychology and Criminology graduate Beth Danby, has been employed on a sKTP (shorter Knowledge Transfer Partnership) as part of a 10-month project to measure the social value of housing association North Star’s Community Investment activity. Pat Watson, Research Fellow in the School of Health & Social Care was the academic liaison between the company, Beth and the University.

Thanks to Beth’s work the impact of these activities on the communities they serve will be measured. This means the projects that are of most value can be supported and gaps can be identified in activity that could be supported.
