About Stonewater

Stonewater is a social housing provider, with a mission to deliver good quality, affordable homes to people who need them most.

They manage around 32,500 homes in England for over 70,000 customers, including affordable properties for general rent, shared ownership and sale, alongside specialist accommodation such as retirement and supported living schemes for older and vulnerable people, young people's foyers and women's refuges.

Their ambitious house-building programme aims to build a minimum of 1,500 new homes a year from 2022/23 and they have a good pipeline of development to achieve this, driven by their vision of 'everyone having the opportunity to have a place that they can call home'.

Stonewater employs over 800 dedicated and passionate individuals, who all share the housing provider's core values of being ambitious, passionate, agile, commercial and ethical.

Stonewater holds annual 'Values Awards', in which colleagues nominate their peers as to who they believe has most effectively brought the organisation's values to life. A shortlist is then created from the initial nominations and the finalists are announced at Stonewater's annual company day.

The finalists of the 'Values Awards' are given a half-day holiday to get to the venue and get glammed up for the event, and then attend a special celebratory experience all paid for by Stonewater.
