Value for money

Across all of our activities, we aim to generate efficiencies and savings in order to maximise our surpluses.

We use our surpluses to subsidise the provision of new homes and to improve existing homes and services.

Every year, we undertake an annual value for money self-assessment to evaluate our performance against the standards set by our regulator, the Home and Communities Agency.

How we use our Surplus

vfm - how we use surplus

We achieved our highest-ever surplus of £114.5m in 2015/16, a 56% increase on the previous year.

As a not-for-profit organisation, all of our surpluses are used for social purposes, including providing affordable homes and supporting community investment projects.
