“MSP has a strong track record of helping vulnerable people in Cornwall and we know our investment will enable them to generate even more impact by providing the properties that other charities need to further their missions.”
Trupti Patel – Esmée Fairbairn
“We are very excited to be involved with such an innovative housing solution to help vulnerable adults in Cornwall. The Mustard Seed track record has already shown that investing this way works!
“We love their commitment to supporting local charities, achieving social impact by encouraging local investors to help[ those more vulnerable in the community. Our fund matching offer will hopefully encourage more people to invest so that more vulnerable adults can be supported with homes that really meet their needs.”
Siân Edwards – Executive Director of Andrew’s Charitable Trust
“Cornwall has been a holiday destination for me since I was a child (I’m in my late sixties now!) and ten years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to purchase a holiday home in the Roseland. We have thoroughly enjoyed that, but have also been very conscious that second home ownership can come at a cost to the local community.
“The opportunity to invest in MSP and put something extra into the Cornwall community was therefore welcome, particularly given the intent to do something in St Austell and therefore not far away from us, Resonance is well known to me and their involvement gives me confidence that the scheme is well founded.”
Paul Smith – Second Home Owner & Angel Investor
There is an acute lack of housing in Cornwall for vulnerable adults at risk of homelessness. Mustard Seed Property (MSP) offers an answer by purchasing homes in which vulnerable tenants can be supported into stable lifestyles.
Since 2007, more than 20 individuals have been helped by MSP.
As a Helston-based community benefit society, we lease property to trusted organisations in Cornwall who are skilled in helping otherwise homeless adults find their feet.
These trusted organisations become our ‘lease-partners’ and they include highly respected groups such as the St Petroc’s Society. Their role is to place tenants into the houses and give them the support they need.
Should opportunities arise to acquire more homes or form more partnerships, building on the success of MSP’s first, 6-bed home in Helston, those opportunities will be posted here and on our Invest page.
Our share offer is currently closed but if you’d like more information, details of the recent share offer can be found on the Ethex website here.
