Better Homes Better Value Better Communities Better Lives

Welcome to Wayfarer

Wayfarer represents the ownership or management of more than 100,000 affordable homes throughout the South of England.

We’re a collaboration of housing associations, local authorities and charitable partners, committed to providing a secure home for everyone, that meets their individual needs and choices.

Uniting our skills and expertise, we support a set of core principles for the ongoing provision of affordable homes, with particular focus on grant funding partnerships, where we’ve achieved considerable success for 19 years.

We advise on best practice and areas of opportunity and contribute to emerging government policy, working collaboratively with both public and private sectors to build the affordable homes we need.

“Being part of the Wayfarer Partnership allows us to bid for grant funding at the best rates per property and access vital information on different Homes England initiatives. Wayfarer knows how to position bids for grants so that they have the best possible chances of securing funding. Without Wayfarer’s help I cannot imagine how the Council would be able to bid effectively for Homes England grant funding.”
