  • We established Celtic Horizons, our unique wholly-owned subsidiary in partnership with Mears Ltd to look after our asset management in the first agreement of its kind in Wales.

Our people are also incredibly important to us, without them we could not innovate and provide our breadth of services with customers at the heart of all we do.

We hold IIP Gold and are the first Welsh housing association to be awarded the Institute of Customer Service’s ServiceMark.

United Welsh is an independent business which thrives on making a difference; do you want to make a difference too?
