Testimonials

“I felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders and that I had somebody on my side”

Barbara, WHA resident

“Warrington Housing Association’s Whia service is great, as it helps people stay in their own home, and this is really complimented by the fact that you are then introduced to their other services like the LifeTime centre – which shows they really care for the community they work in.”
