Stockport Homes Group have become industry recognised for providing outstanding services to customers with their pursuit of affordable housing for Stockport residents. Using their innovative approach to commercial growth and entrepreneurial culture, they have progressed into the success of today since building the first ALMO (Arm’s Length Management Organisation) in 2009.

The group are optimistic about their future and committed to driving local housing supply forward with plans to increase growth across all commercial activity, by ensuring that social housing is central to devolution in the Greater Manchester area.
Last Friday, the 7th of July, residents and guests of Stockport Homes’ Birch Court, Marple celebrated the completion of the works to the first extra care scheme. The court which has undergone investment works worth £180,000 was officially opened by The Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor Walter Brett and Mrs Maureen Brett and William Wragg MP.
The refurbishment for affordable housing, completed by local contractors Jackson and Jackson, included work to the building’s fabric, individual flats and communal areas. Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes’ Board said,
