Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP)

The Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP) was originally established by Sustainability West Midlands as the Sustainable Housing Action Programme in 2005 and became a separate not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in 2008.

SHAP’s vision is that all domestic dwellings will be energy efficient, resilient to extreme weather, affordable and comfortable to live in, and that this will provide a structure for sustainable communities, attractive places to live and support jobs and skills within a low carbon economy.

Over the years, its activities have developed by attracting the support of others from leading social housing providers, contractors and suppliers including registered providers, ALMOs and local authority housing services as well as housing bodies and construction companies. SWM has worked with SHAP since it was founded in 2005 on various events, such as this one, as we help to support them with their work on this vital agenda.
