About us

Stonewater is an ambitious social housing provider, with a mission to deliver good quality affordable homes to people who need them most.

We manage around 31,500 homes in England for over 65,000 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, Foyers and women’s refuges.

Our bold house-building programme of 2,800 new homes by 2022 is driven by our vision of everyone having the opportunity to have a place they can call home. We plough our surplus profits into building more homes, improving our existing housing stock and investing in our customer services. We have over 600 employees and our values focus on being ethical, ambitious, passionate, agile and commercial.

With an annual turnover of around £181 million and £1.7 billion in assets, Stonewater is a strong, dynamic and well-managed social business with an A2 Moody’s investor’s credit rating and a top G1/V1 governance and viability ranking from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

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.
