For over 40 years Warrington Housing Association has been providing a broad range of affordable homes and services across the Borough and we are as passionate now as we have ever been about making Warrington a great place to live, in which the potential of individuals and communities can be realised.
We currently own and manage around 1,300 homes for families, older people and people with additional support needs, including leasehold and shared ownership properties.
Since 2007 we have been the managing agent of the Warrington Home Improvement Agency (WHiA), a not-for-profit service for older disabled and vulnerable residents in the town who wish to repair, improve and adapt their homes.
LifeTime joined the Association’s family in 2013, an exciting network providing opportunities for older people in Warrington to connect, be active, health and to keep learning in a fun and fulfilling environment.
