Tenant engagement champion appointed chair of housing association board #ukhousing

Ms Osbourne has served on the housing association’s board for the past four years and takes over as chair from Robin Burman.

Stockport Homes was formed in 2005 to manage housing stock across the town on behalf of Stockport Council. In 2015, the ALMO signed an agreement with the council to manage its homes until 2042 and now oversees around 11,500 properties.

During 2016, the landlord extended its services through a new trading company, Three Sixty, and a development company, Viaduct. Earlier this year, it established Foundations Stockport, a community benefit society that works to alleviate poverty.
