"Thames Reach is an organisation that continually seeks innovative
solutions, looks to the future and accepts risk as normal. GROW is an
example of ensuring we turn our organisational ethos and values into
tangible results rather than maintaining the status quo.
"We know there is much work to do, and it was never going to be easy,
but the positive changes the GROW Revolution can bring to our work with
homeless people are, in my view, both enormous and undeniable."
Jeremy Swain, Chief Executive
"GROW has been inspired by models in New York, where user employment is far more commonplace, and we see potential benefits for all concerned.
"Thames Reach is prepared to put its money where its mouth is and give real jobs to people who have been homeless. We need to ask ourselves; "if we aren’t, why should we expect other employers to do so?"
John Crowther, former Thames Reach Director of Operations
