Circle Housing Wherry

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

Circle Housing Wherry is part of Circle Housing 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 housing association is led by Circle Housing Wherry's Managing Director, Sue Stavers, and the Senior Management Team.

History of Circle Housing Wherry

Wherry Housing Association 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 Trust to become Circle Anglia (now Circle Housing) in 2005, managing homes across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, London, Kent, Sussex, Surrey and beyond! Circle Housing Wherry is one of 9 housing associations in Circle Housing.

Since merging to become part of Circle Housing, 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.
