Hightown has successful partnerships with local authorities, health authorities, contractors and consultants, regulators and other agencies to provide a wide range of housing and support to meet local needs.
Hightown receives revenue funding from Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire County Councils (including Supporting People funding) to provide care.
To build new homes, Hightown takes out loans from banks and building societies. In 2015, a Retail Charity Bond issue raised additional funds. Where available, we supplement these loans with capital grants and/or free or discounted land from local authorities.
The loans are repaid from rental income which also supports management and maintenance expenditure and the cost of lost rent due to voids and bad debts. Many of Hightown’s tenants receive housing benefit.
