HACT is delighted to announce that the leading Midlands housing association, whg, has signed up to the Board Charter for Community Investment.

“We congratulate whg in signing up to the Board Charter for Community Investment," said Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT. “In signing up to the Charter, they have demonstrated their commitment to community investment and highlighted their role as a leading anchor institution in Walsall. We have been inspired by their response to the Covid-19 crisis, where they have demonstrated their value as a place-based organisation, their commitment to their communities, and their responsiveness and agility in meeting the needs of thousands of vulnerable residents in Walsall.”

“We are proud to be more than just a landlord, and recognise the important role we play in shaping communities and enabling neighbourhoods to flourish," said Theresa Huburn, Corporate Director, whg. “During the current pandemic, our role at the heart of the local community has enabled us to support some of the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis, helping to coordinate the local response with food parcel deliveries, welfare checks and more.”

“Signing up to this charter demonstrates our continued commitment to investing in projects and initiatives that enhance the lives of local people.”

The Walsall-based housing association, which has been at the forefront of local responses to the current Covid-19 crisis, has signed up to the Board Charter to demonstrate its commitment to creating places that thrive. 

whg is among the largest and most successful providers of high quality housing in the Midlands. Currently housing over 50,000 people in around 21,000 properties, it now has a presence in 18 local authority areas across the Midlands.
