The appointment of Social reflects its desire to showcase the value it creates within the social housing sector, while profiling its partnerships with housing associations which are enabling people with learning disabilities, mental health issues or physical disabilities to move out of hospitals and ageing care homes into specially-adapted, community-based homes for life.

Max Shenkman, Head of Investment at Triple Point Social Housing REIT plc, said: “We wanted to work with a team who share our passion for social housing and can help us get our message out in a way which resonates with a range of audiences, from residents to investors. Our investments are improving lives for the better, and Social has a great track record of telling these human stories.”

John Quinton-Barber, Group Chief Executive at Social, said: “Improving lives is in Social’s DNA. Triple Point Social Housing REIT is unlocking much-needed funding to build more and better specialised supported housing for the people who need it most. We’re proud to give power to their elbow and to draw on our experience with the sector to bring their story to life.”

Founded in 2012, Social now employs 37 staff across its three offices and has built a national client roster spanning housing, not for profit, planning, professional and financial services, energy, education, transport and infrastructure.
