Would you like to join one of Britain’s largest social enterprises, working to create social impact in the housing and property sectors?
Dot Dot Dot Property is a social enterprise focused on improving lives in a housing crisis by turning properties that would otherwise sit empty, into inexpensive housing. And, because they are all about making a social impact, the people they house – their guardians – make a commitment to volunteer for good causes each month. Since 2011, they have housed over 1,900 people across the country and supported them to give tens of thousands of hours of voluntary help to a diverse range of charitable causes.
They use the property guardian model to achieve social impact, but they are also disrupting the property guardian industry, working to push up standards across the board.
