Housing and new poverty

Start of main content

Bankia’s support for families in situations of vulnerability and economic difficulty was expressed in 2017 through the signing of 544 social rent agreements.

Housing support is one of the fundamental lines of Bankia’s social action. Since 2013 we have worked in various areas to improve the beneficiaries’ quality of life.

Most notable are the programmes aimed at facilitating social rents for families facing economic difficulties, as well as the employment orientation and job search programmes.

At Bankia we work closely with other agents to ensure that our social action reaches all areas.

  • We are participants in the Social Housing Pool (SHP), which was set up in 2013 with homes contributed by the banks to help the most vulnerable families by offering reduced rents. In 2017, 554 contracts with families were signed and 2,921 properties were contributed to the SHP.
  • We have signed agreements with organisations such as Tengo Hogar, Caritas and Fundación Randstad in order to reach the families that need a social rent. The mission of these NGOs is to help families submit and manage their housing applications, obtain supplementary welfare benefits and also find employment orientation and job search programmes, as well as schooling for minors, among other social actions.
  • We have numerous agreements in autonomous communities including Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha, Islas Canarias, Cataluña, Comunidad Valenciana and La Rioja to speed up the process of awarding and allocating rental housing.
