Fabrick Housing Group

Fabrick Housing Group has been working with Teesside University to look at how the housing provider and developer engages with the community. Fabrick owns and manages around 15,000 homes across the North East and Yorkshire

Having already implemented a wide range of social projects and initiatives, Fabrick wanted to measure and evaluate the impact of this social investment and identify which programmes produce the greatest social return for residents' quality of life. Fabrick and its partner companies Erimus Housing and Tees Valley Housing do a lot of work which many people may not be aware of, such as bespoke financial advice for residents and business incubation premises to creating nature parks from wasteland. The group also offers community investment; everything from work with the elderly to community cookery classes.

A bespoke evaluation methodology toolkit has been developed in partnership with Teesside University, through a short Knowledge Transfer Partnership (sKTP), to measure the value of these social investment activities and help Fabrick develop its social investment strategy.

Stephanie Mulrine, a master’s graduate, was the sKTP associate, with academic support from Peter Van Der Graaf, Research Fellow, of Teesside University’s Social Futures Institute.
