Title: Wandle Housing Association Framework Agreement for Recruitment Agency Services 2018-22. Reference number: WAH/001
Short description: Wandle supports people, across south London, who need a home. Founded in 1967 as the Merton Family Housing Trust, it has since grown into an organisation with over 7,000 homes across 9 south London boroughs. Wandle is a provider of homes for rent (social and affordable), shared ownership, outright sale, and supported housing. It also has a small portfolio of commercial properties and garages.
As a developing housing association, Wandle is helping to tackle the shortage of good quality affordable housing. Its recent development programmes have provided hundreds of new homes both for the people most in need of housing and those who would otherwise not be able to afford to own their own home. Its existing properties are as diverse as the areas in which it operates. Wandle wants to be a good landlord and contribute to building strong communities in the area, working through its community investment strategy.
