The Community Impact Partnership, CIP, is a Community Interest Company established in 2018 (Company Number 11275198). It is jointly owned by four of the UK’s leading housing associations. The partnership was established as a way of providing social investment alongside the existing community programmes delivered by each partner. It offers the opportunity to support organisations and communities in different ways. As a mission-led investor CIP looks to support organisations that can achieve positive, long-term social and economic benefits for the communities served by the four partners. By offering repayable finance the money repaid can be recycled, making the funds work harder and extending the impact it helps to create.
