Driven by our Vision of everyone having the opportunity to have a place that they can call home, we offer homes for rent, shared ownership and sale. We also have specialist housing, retirement and supported living schemes for older and more vulnerable people, domestic abuse refuges, LGBTQ+ Safe Spaces, and young people's foyers.

We aim to become a truly customer-driven organisation by building a relationship built on respect, honesty, transparency, and a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Stonewater has an annual turnover of around £239m and £2.4bn in fixed assets, a long-term rating of A by independent credit rating agency, S&P Global Ratings, as well as a top G1/V1 governance and viability ranking.
