A little bit about us

The homes are spread across a large area of Cheshire and Warrington. We are committed to doing all we can to improve people’s quality of life and have a clear vision for our future, which places people at the heart of all we do by investing in our colleagues, customers, assets, services, neighbourhoods, and communities.
The Trust is also committed to building new homes by as we strive to deliver much-needed affordable new homes in Cheshire and Warrington. All new homes are built to high standards of energy efficiency, with many including the latest technology to help lower customer energy bills and reduce the impact on the environment.
Our Support Teams deliver a range of services focused on supporting customers to thrive in their communities. In 2022/23 our Money Matters Team delivered more than £4Million in Income Gains for our customers. These figures represent a 25% increase in support provided, compared to the previous financial year (2021-2022).
