developing ethical supply chains and meaningful corporate responsibility

Martyn Broadest of Connect Housing, signs up to 50in250 with Mike McCusker of Fresh Horizons and Lucy Findlay of the Social Enterprise Mark.

Fresh Horizons, a social enterprise certified with the Social Enterprise Mark, has signed a deal with Connect Housing, the West Yorkshire housing association, to help bring empty homes into use as affordable housing.

As a result, Connect Housing have become the latest company to sign up to the Social Enterprise Mark’s 50 in 250 Campaign, by contracting with Huddersfield based Fresh Horizons.

The 50in250 campaign is designed to help 50 businesses each buy from 5 social enterprises, within 250 days. By using certified social enterprises in their supply chain, businesses can demonstrate easy corporate responsibility in an ongoing, valuable and meaningful way.

Fresh Horizons will deliver housing refurbishment and management. Managing Director, Mike McCusker, said: “We are delighted that such a prestigious organisation as Connect Housing, has added us to their supply chain as part of the Engage Project to bring empty homes into use as affordable housing. The 50in250 campaign is designed to help businesses use certified social enterprises within their supply chains, and in the process dramatically improve the benefit they deliver to communities. This work will certainly do just that. ”

Lucy Findlay Chief Executive of The Social Enterprise Mark said: “50in250 will help companies know who can contribute real social value to their supply chains. As the certification for social enterprises, the Mark provides the only reliable way of knowing that the people you do business with have genuine commitment to use profits to support their social or environmental aims.”

Martyn Broadest Director of Regeneration at Connect Housing said “Connect Housing is delighted to be working with Fresh Horizons as part of the Engage partnership, with the aim of bringing empty homes back into use as affordable rented housing. Our partnership will bring benefits to both organisations, helping Fresh Horizons to create a sustainable property lettings and management business, and offering Connect the opportunity to learn from Fresh Horizon’s entrepreneurial success.”
