Inclusion and belonging is a top priority for Abri, with the company putting the necessary governance structures in place to challenge itself, as well as setting out a public commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

With this in mind, the organisation has expanded its internal training and development offer to include a series of 'Let’s Talk About Race' workshops, 'Let’s Talk About Banter' workshops, and 'Get Curious' events on being a bystander, being an ally, conscious inclusion, and transgender awareness.

Abri has 35,000 homes with 80,000 residents living in them, and the organisation is committed to maintaining a strong local presence and a deep understanding of its customers and communities. This, it says, ensures it continues to be a great neighbour. The company is passionate about tackling the housing crisis and building thriving and sustainable communities with equal opportunity for all.

In 2021, the organisation launched a five-year £15m community investment strategy, focusing on eight community investment zones and working with each neighbourhood to develop 13 community investment plans.

Abri has also awarded £173k in funding to nine organisations to deliver projects via its ‘Partnership Fund’. The projects cover its community investment programme (CIP) areas and range from initiatives supporting energy hardship, health and wellbeing, and reviewing community business opportunities to utilise under-used facilities at a block of 400 properties in Slough.
