Whitefriars Housing exists to create places where people are proud to live and work.
Our not-for-profit housing association was born in 2000 as a result of a positive tenant vote which led to what was then the largest single housing stock transfer in the country.
More than 22,000 homes owned by Coventry City Council were passed on to us, making us the city’s largest social landlord.
Over the past 12 years around 2,000 homes have been sold under the Right to Buy and 2,000 homes that were mostly vacant and beyond economical repair have been demolilshed. We have developed more than 500 homes across the city. As a result, we are now the proud owners and managers of more than 18,000 affordable homes.
In 2009 Whitefriars joined Harden, Kemble and Nexus Housing Associations as a member of the West Mercia Housing Group, which is now known as WM Housing Group. We are part of a regional force of more than 24,000 homes which also enjoys the status of being a lead investment partner of the HCA and the lead member of the Spectrum Development Consortium development consortium.
Geographically WM Housing spans Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Coventry, Birmingham and the West Midlands. What links us is our agreed key values to provide excellent service, value people, act with integrity and deliver creative solutions. Thanks to our changed status our resources and opportunities have grown, but our autonomy and local specialism remain.
