Our resident paperwork is under constant review and dovetails together with the legal framework, ensuring your supported housing project gets off to the best possible start. Even with no previous experience, our step-by-step process is easy to follow and includes all the resources you need.

finance

Where a church or Christian Charity wishes to reach and house the homeless in their area, we at Green Pastures can purchase property for them to achieve this goal. We raise finance through our Unsecured Loan Stock and Bank Borrowing. Before we make an offer on a property we ensure that the borrowing can be serviced by the housing benefit due to the residents who will live in the house. Approximately £700,000 from 30 investors is paid into our Loan Stock Program each month. We pay investors up to 5% to enable us to end homeless in the UK. Since 2005 individuals and organisations have invested funds into Green Pastures to house those in need.

Property

Green Pastures has over 20 years of experience in purchasing, adapting and designing property. We have conveyed over 300 purchases and are very familiar in working with solicitors. One of our directors is a successful architectural technician. We are also increasingly becoming experienced in new build projects. For example in partnership with St Marks' Church, Barking, The Berkley Foundation and London Borough of Barking & Dagenham (LBBD) we completed on 59 new homes (Marksgate) in Spring 2016 in one of the most deprived boroughs in England. 56 units are affordable homes provided by LBBD and we retained 3 units that we are using in partnership with St Marks church to house church workers and the needy.
