We believe homes are for people - not for profit. Uprise started with a group of like-minded individuals from varied social and commercial backgrounds getting together in 2014. We have a simple goal of delivering truly affordable, quality homes (60 – 70% of market) for rent or to buy - for Londoners who live and work in London and pay UK taxes. Our profits are then reinvested to build homes for social purpose – long term accommodation for women and children leaving refuges and situations of domestic violence or trauma. The Uprise model of blending social, impact, private and government funds leads to innovative and flexible funding solutions. With the support of mainstream and social lenders, pioneers in social investment and impact investors, Uprise is able to buy quickly, below asking price, properties which are offered off market.
