Housing associations have been showing their support to the Thames Reach Employment Academy and reflecting its appeal by booking space and planning to hold meetings there.

This will ensure that their membership is aware of the exciting things going on at the Employment Academy and the opportunities it provides for them and their tenants.

Dave Shiress, co-ordinator of the SE London Housing Partnership, an organisation which will be holding a meeting there shortly after it opens, said: “Using the Academy to host a forum of housing associations and other agencies involved in employment and training initiatives reflects anticipation by housing providers that the Academy could offer vital support for them in their efforts to support residents into work.”

Bill Tidnam, director of Thames Reach’s South London services, said: “We see housing associations as one of the key links to the local community and we’re really pleased for them to be at the Employment Academy so soon after it has been finished.”
