How we work with organisations

Our local knowledge, relationships with tenants and face-to-face approach enable housing associations and local authorities to direct their funding to the right places. We also work with commercial businesses that have the technical and design expertise to complement our local presence, grassroots knowledge and relationships with beneficiaries. Green Doctors can also use their visits to identify other vulnerabilities and make referrals to relevant services if needed.
