Sovereign Housing

Your students, our residents, working together for more impact

Partnership and grant opportunities in your community

Our work with schools and colleges

Our aim is to improve social mobility for disadvantaged children, young people and adults within our communities.

We know schools and colleges already play a key part in this and we’ve been successfully partnering with educators in our communities to offer even more.

How we can support you

We have lots of properties in your area so many of your students will live in Sovereign homes.

We can offer funding and partnership opportunities that focus on:

  • Educational attainment
  • Careers and aspiration
  • Parental engagement
  • Building the school community

We can work with you to boost what you already do or support new initiatives to benefit the school community.

“Sovereign Housing Association has a clear sense of community responsibility. It is rare for a local organisation to approach us with a plan to improve our community but this is exactly what they did. There is a clear need within the community to increase opportunities for education, skills and training and with Sovereign Housing Association’s support that is exactly what we are doing.”

Chris Harris, Headteacher

Your local Sovereign Communities Officer would be more than happy to come and discuss how we can tailor these opportunities for your students and communities.

We’d love to discuss what you’re already doing and either enhance it, or add to it. All we ask is that any work we fund is targeted towards students who live in our postcode areas.
