These are unprecedented and challenging times for everyone. We know many of our customers will be feeling anxious and uncertain about the coming days and weeks. We have put together information to let you know what we are doing to keep our customers and staff safe.
First and foremost, we want to reassure everyone who relies on us that we will continue to provide the essential services you need.
We are a large organisation with a committed staff. Whilst our offices may have closed, we are able to work with our partners and contractors to review and plan our response daily.
We will continue to review and update this information as the situation changes and as we receive feedback from our customers.
Stay safe and keep well.
To ensure the health and safety of our customers and staff, we are only carrying out essential property and resident services to residents during the coronavirus outbreak.
When any of our staff or contractors visit your home for an appointment, they will ask you at the door if anyone in your home is self-isolating. If they are, we will only attend to emergency situations.
If you are self-isolating and you need to cancel a routine appointment, or have an emergency to report, please call us on 0800 3 282 282.

We are receiving an exceptionally high number of reports from residents and staff around people not following the Government's ‘stay at home’ and social distancing guidance, which was introduced to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
We strongly encourage everyone to follow this guidance, however we do not have the power to enforce this policy, it is the responsibility of the Police. Therefore, we would ask that any residents and staff wishing to report non-compliance with the government’s guidance make these direct to the Police.
