About The Wrekin Housing Trust
The Wrekin Housing Trust is one of the largest social housing providers/housing associations in the West Midlands with almost 12,000 homes for rent (and low cost home ownership) across Shropshire and Staffordshire. Established in 1999, our portfolio of homes is growing through new developments across Shropshire and Staffordshire and includes everything from apartments in well-established residential areas to town houses and family homes in both rural and town locations.
Our customers are served by a network of local and accessible shops and offices in convenient high street and neighbourhood locations throughout Telford, and in Shrewsbury and Stafford.
All of our homes benefit from a full repairs and maintenance service. Our award winning maintenance teams and our in-house gas team cover all areas and we work in partnership with a growing number of housing providers to provide maintenance services.
We work in partnership with our residents and service users, involving them in decisions about our operations, management and services and asking them for opinions and feedback. This enables us to continuously improve performance and make sure that the Trust keeps providing tenants and service users with a high quality service.
