Hastoe Group is the UK’s leading rural housing association; it owns and manages over 7,000 homes in 62 local authority areas. It specialises in providing sustainable and affordable rural housing to enable local people to remain within their communities. Hastoe’s vision is to seek innovative solutions to housing issues; supporting rural communities; and a commitment to environmental sustainability.
Rural communities are in crisis in the UK. Unable to afford to live and work in the villages they call home, people are forced to move away from their communities in order to find a home they can afford. Broadgate was commissioned to develop a microsite to provide an online resource for people involved in campaigning for or writing about affordable rural housing.
