Helen McHale, Vice-Chair

Chief Executive, Stockport Homes Group

Helen led the team that established Stockport Homes. After working in North West housing (including Stockport) for almost 20 years, she then set up Stockport Homes taking it from the new company it was then, with 225 employees, to the Group Structure it is today with three times that. This has been founded on an excellent relationship with Stockport Council.

Helen is recognised both nationally and locally, whether it be through awards, accreditations or as a result of being active in both the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) and Greater Manchester Housing Providers (GMHP), regularly speaking out about key issues.

She works with colleagues across the Group to pursue SHG’s aims and values whether it be delivering excellence, putting customers at the heart of everything, being a great employer or maximising efficiencies. Helen works collaboratively both within SHG and Stockport, regionally and nationally to ‘transform lives’. This is founded on maximising the role of Social Landlords in the wider well being of their tenants, customers and communities, as part of understanding the massive role we can play in contributing to much wider outcomes for both society and the individual.
