We are Goscombe and we are in business to do things differently.
We believe that housing affordability is integral to the welfare of both our communities and society.
So, we are motivated to create powerful social impact through innovations in homebuilding.
We are focused.
Our nation needs to build more affordable homes and social housing, we are focused solely on this task, nothing else.
Whilst much of our housing market leaves many without a foothold within their community we believe that housing accessibility is key to the stability and growth of a resilient society.
Therefore, our sole aim as a social business is to create homes that people can access, afford, and that are sustainable for the long-term.
Our Model. Innovation in, impact out.
For every home that we create and sell affordably, the profit from that sale contributes toward both the building of a second home and our ‘mission’ fund. We retain each of these second homes. We call this One4One.
We affordably lease each second home that we retain. That income is added to our mission fund, and that fund enables us to fuel positive social impact. The more homes we build, sell, retain, and lease the more ‘good’ we are able to do.
We redistribute that income to our charitable partner to provide apprenticeships, employment opportunities, community programmes, and to enable initiatives that strengthen communities and reverse housing inequality.
We empower others.
We know that business can be a force for good, but we also know that where our skills end, others must begin.
That is why we work with our charity partner, Trelis, to leverage the potential our model creates.
We redistribute our mission fund to Trelis, empowering them to utilise their skills and experience in delivering life-changing initiatives to the communities in which we work.
"Goscombe has the potential to radically change the way affordable housing is delivered and sustainable communities are created".
