The Funds Background

Our background 
Trafford Housing Trust is a profit-for-purpose business. Driven by social justice, our mission is to inspire people and neighbourhoods to be the best they can be. Our vision is a society transformed, free from poverty, inequality and injustice.

Established in 2005, we have a proud record of investing in our communities. For the first 11 years of our existence we operated in five area-based Community Panels, who awarded £750,000 per year mostly in small grants to local projects. We are really proud of the work the Community Panels achieved. You can see a snap shot of their work here:


Launched in 2017, our Social Investment Service builds on this legacy. Each year we will commit 10% of our operating profit to enable anti-poverty activities that enhance the lives of customers and other residents of Trafford and beyond.

As an anti-poverty organisation, we will invest in work which seeks to:
• Strengthens families and communities
• Increases household incomes and reduces living costs
• Enhances prospects for life through improved education and skills
• Builds the local economy to benefit everyone
Our investment into these priorities does not just mean finance. Our full range of services includes coaching for success, income generation, brokerage of expertise and volunteering support from private businesses, and connecting you with a range of strategic partners from Trafford and beyond.

Get in touch, and we can start the conversation about how we can help your anti-poverty work create the most effective impact - now and for the long term.
