Circle Housing Wherry

Circle Housing Wherry owns 7,200 homes in Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire

Circle Housing Wherry is part of Circle Housing Group and is a non-profit making organisation which means that any 'surpluses' are invested back into new and existing homes.

Circle Housing Wherry is managed by a Board of 9 members, comprised of 2 residents and 7 independent people with professional skills to help run the service. We also have a Governance Manager who ensures that the company is run in full compliance with the Companies Act and all other appropriate legislation and best practice guidance.

The day-to-day management of the Association is led by Wherry's Managing Director, Sue Stavers, and the Senior Management Team.

History of Wherry Housing Association

Circle Housing Wherry was formed following the transfer of 3715 homes from Broadland District Council in 1990. We are now proud to own and manage 7,200 homes across 18 Local Authority Areas in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Hertfordshire.

In 1995 we formed part of the Anglia Housing Group, the first group structure in the country, which then merged with Circle 33 Housing Group to become Circle Anglia (now Circle) in 2005, managing homes across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, London, Kent, Sussex, Surrey and beyond! Wherry is one of 9 housing associations in the Circle Group.

Since merging to become part of Circle, Circle Housing Wherry has developed a clear vision that goes beyond delivering decent homes and excellent services to creating safe attractive neighbourhoods with communities that work. We are proud to have retained a clear local identify whilst using our national profile to deliver improvements for our residents.
