Who are we?

whg was formed in 2003 following Large Scale Voluntary Transfer from Walsall Council. Since then we have invested more than £1 billion in Walsall and expanded our operating area. We now own and manage around 22,000 homes in 21 local authorities across the Midlands.

Our increasingly diverse portfolio includes homes for social, affordable, market rent and shared ownership. We are a strategic partner of Homes England, with ambitious plans to build 550 new homes across the region each year. In 2022/23 we invested £50.5m in our existing homes and developed 255 new properties.
