Halton Housing Trust is a forward thinking and dynamic not for profit housing association that owns and manages 6,500 homes in the Cheshire towns of Runcorn and Widnes.
We employ over 280 talented members of staff, including 80 specialist trades people in our Construction Services team. Our Board work closely with our Executive Management team to ensure that we meet our promises and main objective – ‘Improving People’s Lives.’
Over the last 10 years we’ve invested £135,000,000 in our homes. The investment work included replacement doors, canopies, windows, roofs, heating systems, kitchens and bathrooms where needed.
As a result of this investment and our good management of our homes, the valuation (as measured by EUV-SH) has increased to £181m. We use our existing homes to secure borrowing to fund new homes.
As one of the largest employers in Halton, and as the borough’s biggest landlord, we have responsibilities to the wider community. But it’s not just a sense of responsibility that drives what we do, all our staff genuinely care about the communities in which they work, and they are passionate about their jobs.
Throughout 2014/15 we undertook the following activities in the community:
"We want to contribute to shaping communities both locally and nationally. By collaborating we can share best practice and have a stronger voice."
