About us

Onward is one of the largest registered providers of social housing based solely in the North West of England, with 35,000 homes across Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire. We are a not-for-profit organisation regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing.

Our purpose is to enable customers to be their best by providing homes that people love in places they are proud of. We do this by:

  • Building, managing and maintaining homes for people who are unable to access housing on the open market.
  • Delivering homes and services that make a real difference to the people living in our neighbourhoods.
  • Offering customers support and assistance, helping them to overcome the challenges.
  • Providing specialist housing including sheltered and housing with care, enabling our customers to live independent lives in the community.
  • Working with partners, voluntary groups and government agencies to provide more homes and support our customers across the North West.
