50 faces of Wandle

Meet Tracey: "It makes my day when I hear the success stories of our tenants that the dedication and hard work from all of Wandle’s staff."

My roots are firmly based in Battersea.  Most of my family still live there, my Granddad used to run a fruit, and veg stall back in the day, before my time though! My mum still goes to the high street stalls for her veg every Saturday morning, although there are not so many of them left now, but it is a great source of banter and community.

Meet Josh: "I felt that joining Young Wandle would give me the opportunity to have my voice heard and give ideas to directly influence my community."

I decided to join Young Wandle as growing up in south London, we’re exposed to seeing that there are a lot flaws in society and we have to learn that first hand.

Bill's story: "Social housing has played such a big part of my life. I feel great to be able to do a job in an organisation that wants to continue to change the lives within the communities they have been working in for 50 years."

I grew up on a council estate in Harold Hill, just outside Romford. My family moved into the flat in 1946 and I was born in 1959. We had a two bedroom flat to fit the five of us, it was a bit of a squeeze but they were thankful to have a home.

Meet Francesca: "The fact that Wandle are also offering work experience to members of Young Wandle in a department of their choice just goes to show how much Wandle actually cares about their residents"

I’m also very interested in looking after my community which I why I decided to join ‘Young Wandle’. Since joining in last year I think it’s one of the best decisions that I could have made.
