About Westward

Strategic objectives posterAs a developing landlord, we build new homes across the region, working in partnership with local authorities to rent homes to those in need. You can read our Strategic Plan for 2017 - 2020 here.

We build and purchase homes to sell affordably on a shared ownership basis, or using the Help to Buy scheme. Help to Buy South West is the agency for Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and part of Somerset, managed jointly with Sovereign Housing and provides shared ownership and other equity products to help people buy their own home.

Horizon Homes, a Westward initiative, sells properties on the open market to both augment neighbourhoods and to provide financial support for the continuing development of our core business, meeting our social purpose.

We work with a wide range of other organisations including housing associations, Devon Rural Housing Partnership, Safer Communities and the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership to address housing issues across all tenures.

The affordable housing sector in the south west plays a key role in the local economy creating 11,000 jobs; valued at a £1 billion turnover. Read  'Housing Associations: Local Economic Drivers.pdf
