About Us

Irwell Valley Homes is a housing association providing affordable homes and services to over 20,000 people across Greater Manchester and employing over 280 colleagues.

We are a charitable, registered provider of social housing and offer homes mainly for social rent, with a small number for affordable rent, market rent and shared ownership. We also provide homes with support for people with dementia, mental health issues, learning and physical disabilities, those who have been made homeless and people affected by domestic abuse.

As well as providing homes, we deliver services and support to customers and work in partnership with specialist organisations to help them sustain their tenancies and get on in life. And we engage with customers to shape services and review our effectiveness.

We work hard to keep homes well maintained and invest in customers’ homes through our continuous programme of works. We know how important it is to build more affordable home to meet the growing demand, so we're building around 1200 new homes across Greater Manchester and undertaking a £50m estate regeneration programmes in Trafford - the largest programme of its kind in Greater Manchester in over a decade.  

We have an active social investment strategy and a £2m investment fund which is overseen by a resident led foundation. The Irwell Valley Foundation has a long history of supporting people, improving places and bringing communities together by providing funding to help people with their personal development and wellbeing, as well as projects and initiatives that benefit the wider community.
