Patrons

The Rt Revd Dr David Walker

The Trust has a long tradition of support from Bishops of Manchester, and values Bishop David’s ongoing commitment and active role in promoting awareness of social and special needs housing. He worked with Church Housing Trust on the ground over many years and was very pleased to accept a role as one of our patrons in December 2013.

Bishop David commented “I’ve worked with Church Housing Trust on the ground over many years, but never imagined I would be given the honour of serving as one of the patrons. I remain a great fan of how the trust enables quality homes and services to reach the most needy among us.”
