The AI Readiness Fund_

Empowering the modern Housing Association with the AI Readiness Fund.

Amidst the rapid advancement of technology, AI stands out as a beacon for innovation and growth. Tenant communication, improving operational efficiency, compliance, removing manual taks, and maintenance management are all areas where AI can have a significant impact on the modern housing association.

Housing Associations however need to be ready to embrace this technology. This is why we have created the AI Innovation Fund.

What is the AI Readiness Fund?

We are committing £500,000* to support ambitious Housing associations, and local government organisations in making the first steps to AI readiness.

These numbers paint a picture of both trepidation and opportunity. But remember, it’s not just about the technology; it’s about understanding it. And our AI Readiness Fund is here to bridge that gap.
