Trafford Housing Trust is an independent housing organisation with big ambitions; a local company with national reach. As a housing company providing over 9,000 quality homes within the Trafford area, our main business is about being an excellent social landlord.

In addition to our core landlord business we operate a collection of social enterprises including property development and repair, grounds maintenance and recycling, care for older and vulnerable people, community investment, support and grant giving.

People are at the very heart of what we do and delivering excellent service is important to us. All our staff share a united vision of a society free from poverty, inequality and injustice.
