The Stone Foundation is a brand new Charity set up and partially funded by the Mavam Group.
Housing and Tenancy support for vulnerable people
The main aim is to provide housing and tenancy support for vulnerable people who have difficulty, for whatever reason, accessing or maintaining accommodation themselves.
Demand for this type of service is huge at a time when housing is in relatively short supply and housing costs are rising. However, by working in partnership with others to secure properties that are not being used for instance and by offering an attractive, competitive and assured service to landlords, we feel the aims of the organisation can be achieved in due course.
Although the Charity is a completely independent organisation with its own Constitution and Board of Trustees, it will be working very closely with Mavam Supported Housing and YLOH, replicating its ethos to meet need in the most appropriate, innovative and sustainable ways. As such, the support of Trustees has been sought according to their belief in the issues, their skills, knowledge and experience and their general life philosophies, which will enable the charity to function effectively and lend credibility to its purpose.
The Stone Foundation has been set up in response primarily to the need for move-on accommodation for people currently in living in supported accommodation in Suffolk.
