Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) & Charity Work
Addressing UK’s homelessness & Chronic Housing Shortage
We see first-hand the challenges that our Local Authorities, local government, and charities have when tackling UK homelessness.
The European Commission reported in 2017, that 112.9 million people, or roughly 22.5% of the then-EU population, were at-risk of poverty or social exclusion. In the UK, as of January 2021, one in every 200 people are homeless. As of the most powerful economies in the world, we still face homelessness in the UK.
Our vision at Rentsurance was created to address a niche in housing DSS tenants in the rent guarantee market and support charities in raising awareness at both local and central government platforms, which now becomes our corporate social responsibility (CSR).
In helping our vision, we have pledged to donate 10% of our annual revenue to homelessness charities to help create awareness and encourage landlords to ‘free up’ housing to displaced and unemployed tenants.
