We are Goscombe and we are in business to do things differently.
We believe that purpose-driven business can play an essential role in the alleviation of poverty, social breakdown and environmental degradation.
We also believe that access to a safe and sustainable ‘home’, at any stage of life, is central to both our individual and collective welfare.
So, we create new ways to finance, build, sell, and lease affordable homes and social purpose housing; redistributing our profits for community benefit.
We are focused.
Our nation needs to build more social purpose 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 purpose-driven 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, the profit from that sale contributes toward our ability to retain homes exclusively for a social purpose.The more homes we create and sell, the more homes we are able to retain, and set aside, to meet housing needs.
We affordably rent each of the homes that we retain. A proportion of our overall profitability is then added to our social fund, to fuel positive social impact in local communities. The more homes we create & sell, retain & lease, the more ‘good’ we are able to do.
We donate our social fund to our charitable partner, Trelis, to create apprenticeships, provide employment opportunities, fuel 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 funds from our profitability to Trelis, empowering them to utilise their skills and experience in delivering life-changing initiatives to the communities in which we work.
