Trust and Wishaw & District Transfer
Trust had been selected as Wishaw & District Housing Association’s preferred partner. We are working with Wishaw & District to get ready for formalising the partnership later this year, provided Wishaw and District tenants vote in favour of the transfer.
What Does this Mean for Trust?
It means that Wishaw & District will become part of Trust in a partnership that will combine both organisations into one that is financially stronger and even better able to meet future challenges and customer needs by investing in services, homes and technology. We will be a larger, stronger and more resilient organisation with more money to invest in our stock. It will see Trust grow by 40%.
What does this mean for Trust tenants?
This will allow us to keep rents affordable and focus on providing excellent services for older people. Wishaw & District brings with it a strong financial contribution, so the transfer will be at no cost to Trust tenants and will bring benefits of more money to invest in the housing stock for existing and future tenants.
What happens next?
Subject to Wishaw & District tenants voting in favour of the partnership in a ballot later in 2019, our aim is that Wishaw & District will become part of Trust in late 2019. Throughout the process we will be engaging with tenants from both organisations. We have already held successful meetings with Trust’s North Lanarkshire tenants and Wishaw & District tenants.
