Hugs change lives.
Group Hug is a social enterprise that builds affordable, high-quality and beautiful modular homes, that touch the earth lightly and are a sound solution to many housing issues/needs.
The design technology and construction method mean many members of society, who have faced disadvantage and prejudice, can find meaningful and sustainable employment in their manufacture.
Leading by example is no longer noble, it’s a necessity.
Our factory is based in Oxford, we work with ethical, local partners.
Patented, timber frame system, built in a controlled environment.
Every Hug that gets built generates socially impactful training and employment.
Materials are sourced locally = less transport carbon + more UK jobs
Minimal waste in production, reduced energy needs and no concrete slab work.
Smart use of materials, build times and modern build methods
When we created Hug, we wanted to do more than revolutionise the housing market. We wanted the actual making of Hug homes to change lives too.
Smart design means Hugs are logical to make, they create jobs and opportunities for a remarkable group of talented, resilient people; the ones who’ve survived addiction, broken the cycle of criminality, battled mental health issues, lived on the streets and more. These are the exceptional people – the ones at the heart of Hug.
By taking away the cartel-like complexity of
old-fashioned house building, Hug opens a huge number of employment opportunities.
Our pledge is that 80% of our workforce will have faced disadvantage and prejudice in their lives. We will prove, through the quality of Hugs, that no-one should be judged by their past.
