Stonewater

Stonewater manages and owns more than 30,000 homes across England and we have one of the UK’s largest development programmes to help meet the rising demand for housing, Stonewater was formed in January 2015 from the merger of Jephson and Raglan Housing Associations. We are one of the UK’s most significant social housing providers, both in terms of the properties we own, and geographic spread. Our mission is to offer quality homes and services for people whose needs are not met by the open market. By investing in technology and new approaches, we continually improve our services and meet the aspirations of our customers. Put simply, our vision is for everyone to have the opportunity to have a place they can call home.
