Making communities. Making Vistry.

Social value goes beyond simply building houses. It’s about creating positive social, environmental, and economic benefits for the communities where our homes are built. This holistic approach ensures that new developments contribute to a thriving and sustainable future. We have embedded social value into our group Sustainability strategy which focuses on the creation of placemaking, enhancing nature and increasing employment, skills & opportunities, creating a legacy within communities and most of all creating places people love.

At Vistry we have broken social value down into 4 core pillars: health & wellbeing, environmental wellbeing, community engagement and employment, skills and opportunities. Each pillar represents an area of social value in which we can support the communities and places that we work in, and with, daily.

Social cohesion - community engagement

At Vistry, we invest in diverse and inclusive community networks and leverage our skills and expertise to address local issues and facilitate social innovation. We achieve this is by working with residents beyond in consultations, empowering local voices and engaging with local stakeholders, investing in infrastructure, and creating mixed-income developments all with a focus on diversity and inclusion.

Economic inclusion - employment, skills & opportunities

We contribute to local economic growth by supporting local businesses, investing in infrastructure, and improving employment prospects for local people. We provide employment opportunities for businesses local to our developments, as well as creating opportunities for apprenticeships and further training, including pre employment support through our Vistry Plus onsite Skills Academies. Vistry are invested in developing the work force of the future through engagement with schools, colleges and universities and encouraging innovation and collaboration across the housebuilding sector.

Health & wellbeing

We’re committed to positively impacting resident and employee mental and physical health. We want to reduce health inequalities.


We aim to build resilient communities that unlock growth in the green economy, regenerate ecosystems and enable people to interact with the natural world. We work closely with our Sustainability colleagues to be aware and mindful of the link between social value and sustainability.

Plus more
