Chototel One Ltd (Chototel) designs lowcost, high-tech buildings than can serve the accommodation needs of people who cannot afford to rent privately. Rooms in the first project, in Nagothane, near Mumbai, start at $2 a night, and can sleep up to four people. Utility bills are charged separately; however, these don’t cost more than $0.50 a day because the building is completely off-grid and uses renewable and sustainable forms of energy, such as solar power. Further cost savings are delivered by automating various hotel services via bots and a smartphone app. The business is globally scalable and plans are in place to expand into the UK and UAE.

Golden Lane Housing Ltd (GLH) is a leading national housing provider for people with learning disabilities. Mencap established it as an independent registered charity in 1998 in response to the huge need for housing for people with a learning disability. Its mission is to provide quality homes around which people with learning disabilities can build their lives. To achieve this, all properties benefit from investment to meet GLH’s standards and tenants are provided with specialist housing management, repairs and maintenance support to ensure they can sustain their tenancy. The majority of GLH tenants have a moderate to severe learning disability and have substantial support needs. Most tenants’ rent is paid directly by the local authority. Tenants benefit from having security of tenure, safe and appropriately adapted accommodation that is well-maintained and situated in a good location. This, combined with specialist support, enables tenants to have greater independence and control over their lives. It also leads to improved physical and mental health, greater safety, better relationships and opportunities to integrate into their local community.
