Our story

As an organisation Onward is relatively new, but our legacy stretches back over 50 years.

Established in April 2018, Onward (formerly known as Symphony Housing Group) brought together several housing associations, namely Liverpool Housing Trust, Hyndburn Homes, Peak Valley Housing Association and Ribble Valley Homes.

Bringing these organisations together allowed us to invest more in our homes and neighbourhoods, improve our services, and make a greater contribution to the sustainable regeneration of communities in the North West.

In 2021, we completed the amalgamation of Contour Homes into Onward Homes and finalised our transition to become one group.
