About us

Winchester Housing Trust is an independent Charity and a Limited Company set up in 1987 to provide affordable housing in the Winchester District.

The Board consists of a voluntary board of Trustees and the Chief Executive, Andrew Simpson. The Board offer their time and expertise to ensure the Trust is run in the best interests of the people in the Hampshire Area. We take a personal interest in our tenants and owners and we take every individual’s circumstances into consideration in relation to their housing.

Although we are independent we work very closely with Winchester City Council and will use our best endeavours to allocate housing to individuals that apply through the housing register.

What we do

We are a provider of affordable housing for communities throughout Hampshire and the surrounding areas.

The Trust offers a range of affordable options for people in housing need including traditional rental, shared equity schemes and a new option of Rent to Buy. Our range gives individuals and families a chance to see which route fits you best currently and how you might progress your housing situation in future.

The Trust is a not-for-profit charity with a committed and experienced board of volunteer directors who oversee the governance of the organisation and help to shape future strategy. Andrew Simpson, the Chief Executive, is responsible for the operational and smooth running of the Trust as well as developing opportunities which help to add more options to the portfolio for our applicants.
