EURHONET members work on any issue related to the stakes of European public and social housing providers, but at the end of the day it is all about housing people by meeting our tenants’ needs in the best possible way!
Sharing knowledge, developing new solutions and exchanging good practices on the way we work on a daily basis are some important steps to help our members improving their performance.
From strategic decisions housing companies would need to take, to the very practical applications in their day-to-day activities, we aim at:
- Searching for innovation – by developing Research & Development projects with strategic European partners;
- Sharing knowledge – by exchanging ideas and benchmarking between members thanks to the work of our Topic Groups.
We are helping our members by sharing good practice and provide them with tools to improve their CSR performance and to report on their impact to their stakeholders in order to reinforce their key role in their respective communities.
We share our experience working on both existing building and new construction by developing tools and methodologies to reduce construction, maintenance and running costs while increasing the quality of the building stock for the comfort of our tenants.
These leads not only to challenges of a physical nature (accessibility, technical solutions) but also of a social nature (increased isolation of the elderly population leading to negative effects on physical health and mental well-being). The provision of “flexible” and accessible homes which can allow tenants to remain independent has long been at the centre of our work.
We explore how housing providers can further promote and foster social integration by harnessing their asset platform and network of partnerships to support and assist our most vulnerable residents including migrants and refugees.
