Our organisation meets the public benefit requirement in the below ways:- Our organisation's purposes create a range of benefits for our target beneficiaries, these are- charitable housing associations, tenants of charitable housing associations and the local communities within which these associations operate The Charity will facilitate and
enable housing associations to become more efficient and effective through the charity's offering of strategic support and advice, promotion of good practice and partnership and support to access funding opportunities. The direct benefits which flow from our charity's purpose are the increased capacity of recipient charities to carry out their own charitable activities which resultingly will increase their impact and contribution to Northern Ireland's society and environment beyond the provision of core housing, care and support services The indirect benefits which flow from our charity's purpose will be the improved environment created by more housing associations providing a broader range of services, which will benefit tenants and others who live in the areas where housing associations operate. The benefits to our beneficiaries can be demonstrated in qualitative and quantitative terms. For housing associations the benefits will include enhanced effectiveness and capacity building, for housing association tenants the benefits will result in improved quality of life, for communities the benefits will be improved cohesiveness and connections. These benefits will be measured through beneficiary surveys, including internal surveys such as survey monkey or face to face surveys as well as external surveys conducted by external evaluators. The outcomes of our work are beneficial, not harmful...
