Making The Difference
Making The Difference means finding new ways to help people have a home.
How? By thinking differently to help those who can't afford to buy, and by working differently with community partners to improve access to shelter and housing.
As a member-owned mutual, our community has always been close to our hearts. After all, without the people of Cambridge, our Society simply wouldn't exist.
That's why we're working hard to give back when we can... and Making The Difference is how we're doing it.
We love the odd cake sale and fundraising event, but this isn't about that kind of thing. It's a long-term promise, using our skills and resources to truly change the lives of people who need our support. Now and in the future.
