Top 10 ranking for The Wrekin Housing Trust

Telford-based The Wrekin Housing Trust has been ranked in the top 10 of housing associations in the UK for increasing their stock.

The Trust, which has over 12,000 properties in Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands, has been ranked 7th in the country in the list of housing associations increasing their stock by the highest percentage for 2017/18. The Trust increased its stock by 5% last year, completing 567 new homes.

Wayne Gethings, Managing Director of The Wrekin Housing Trust, said: “It’s quite an achievement to be one of the top 50 builders, but to make the top 10 in the list of associations that have increased their stock is fantastic for an association of our size.
