Foundation 200

A commitment to give back and support the homeless

Twenty-four years ago, Andy Hill, Group Chief Executive of award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group, was made redundant, a sudden change in circumstances that illustrated to him just how quickly someone’s luck can change.

With the support of his family, he was able to start a business that has grown into one of the UK’s leading developers yet Andy has never forgotten the redundancy that could have so easily led to homelessness for him and his family, nor how fortunate they were to avoid it.

Foundation 200

To celebrate Hill’s 20th anniversary in 1999, Andy Hill, Group Chief Executive of The Hill Group pledged to tackle the homeless crisis, launching Foundation 200, a pledge to design, construct, and donate 200 modular homes to homeless charities by 2025.

Foundation 200 is an innovative, purpose-built modular home equipped to tackle the crisis. With all 200 homes now allocated, Foundation 200 has become a lasting mark of Hill’s desire to give back to the community and support those in most need of a home.

“Homelessness, with its multitude of causes, is sadly a growing problem. That’s why we decided to mark our 20th anniversary with a commitment to ease the current crisis and help people living on the streets to rebuild their lives. “The whole business is taking huge pride in delivering these initiatives, and while we will not solve the problem on our own today, we are taking a big step in the right direction, which we hope others will follow.”
