Riverside is a group of complementary businesses driven by a clear social purpose, with a charitable housing association at its core.
Established over 90 years ago, we have grown to become a major provider of affordable housing, care and support services in England and Scotland, with almost 56,000 homes in management. Operating at scale across over 160 local authorities, our vision is to transform the lives of the 90,000+ people we house and revitalise the neighbourhoods in which they live.
We transform lives by providing well maintained, good quality affordable housing whilst creating opportunities to increase household income through our programmes of employment, affordable warmth and money advice. Through our housing, care and support services we enable people facing a wide variety of challenging circumstances to lead more resilient and independent lives. We revitalise neighbourhoods by building new homes, creating and maintaining green spaces and bringing people together through our community engagement programmes.
Riverside is a values-driven organisation, with a strong sense of social responsibility and a firm line in accountability to our customers.

Equality, diversity and inclusion
We believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity and this commitment to our colleagues and customers is cemented right through our organisation, from our board and senior leadership team down to our front line workers and office-based staff.
To ensure we keep EDI in mind at all times, we work hand in hand with our three staff network groups:
Origin for our BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) colleagues
Spectrum for those who identify as LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual and other non-heterosexual people)
Enable for anyone with a physical disability or experiencing poor mental health.
We are committed to equality of opportunity and values, and respect the diversity of all customers & colleagues. We want all our customers and colleagues to feel they can be their authentic-self. We have a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination, victimisation or harassment on the basis of a person’s gender identity, and have confidential and supportive methods of reporting experiences or witnessing of bullying, harassment and discrimination for both customers and colleagues.
