Stonewater is a social housing provider, with a mission to deliver good quality, affordable homes to people who need them most. We manage around 32,500 homes in England for over 70,000 customers, including affordable properties for general rent, shared ownership and sale, alongside specialist accommodation such as retirement and supported living schemes for older and vulnerable people, young people’s foyers and women’s refuges.
Our ambitious house-building programme aims to build a minimum of 1,500 new homes every year from 2022/23 and we have a good pipeline of development to achieve this, driven by our vision of everyone having the opportunity to have a place that they can call home. We plough our surplus into building new homes, improving our existing housing stock and investing in customer services. Our 800+ employees embody our values – being ambitious, passionate, agile, commercial and ethical. We achieved a ‘One Star’ rating in the 2019 Best Companies survey and are ranked 78th in the Top 100 best not-for-profit organisations to work for and 25th in the best housing associations to work for in 2019.
With an annual turnover of around £191 million and £1.8 billion in assets, Stonewater is a strong, dynamic and well-managed social business, with a long-term rating of A+ (negative outlook) by independent credit ratings agency, S&P Global Ratings and a top G1/V1 governance and viability ranking from the Regulator of Social Housing.
We have seen some fantastic achievements in the relatively short time since Stonewater was formed in January 2015. This video looks at some of the key milestones achieved by everyone at Stonewater.
