Our Vision & Mission

Our Vision

Thriving communities with sustainable, high quality, low carbon homes.

Our Mission

To accelerate the delivery and impact of net zero, by leading and promoting best practice on the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable housing.

What makes us unique

There are very few network organisations within the Midlands or UK that contain such a diverse membership. SHAP’s uniqueness lies in its ability to tackle housing issues drawing on representation and input from private, public, third sector and academia; this includes local authorities and other public bodies, social housing providers, contractors, consultants, suppliers and manufacturers offering services to the housing sector.

SHAP’s open policy encourages a range of partners to collaborate and understand the issues that each face which allows big society problems to be more easily resolved. Members freely provide time, money and information to help the development of good practice / innovative responses to housing issues, creating open discussion and benefiting from collective research.
