Wandle proudly supports people across south London who need a home – it is why we were formed in 1967, and why we exist today.

The Merton Family Housing Trust (Wandle’s original name) was formed by a group of local people who were concerned about homelessness and felt that is was possible to do something practical about it.

50 years on, we have grown into an organisation with over 7,000 homes across nine south London boroughs and almost 200 staff.

This is a great opportunity to join us as the organisation evolves into a housing sector leader.
