Women in Housing

In 2019, three remarkable Stonewater colleagues and one outstanding scheme were shortlisted for Women in Housing awards. The awards aim to recognise the work and achievements of women making a major contribution to the housing sector. 

We caught up with each of the nominees to ask them about their journey at Stonewater, and what their achievement meant to them.
