Our Health and Wellbeing programmes have moved online where possible, and we are reviewing how we offer activties across all our sites.
Repairs and maintenance
We are now in a position to start expanding our repairs service to include urgent and routine repairs. However, as there is a significant backlog of repairs and maintenance from March 2020, our normal repairs timescales may not be achievable. Our Housing Team is working tirelessly to ensure that as many repairs as possible are completed within normal timescales, but we would appreciate your patience where this is not possible.
Please continue to report all repairs through My Tenancy, by email to email@example.com or by phone on 020 7385 2110 and choose Option 1.
We will also be re-starting our planned maintenance programme across some of our sites within the next few weeks. You will be contacted directly about these works if they are being carried out in or around your home.
Health & Safety
We are continuing to carry out gas and electrical safety checks in your home as well as all other safety checks in communal areas. We will undertake the same risk assessments and approach to social distancing as for emergency repairs. Your help in providing access to undertake these safety checks is essential.
Our housing team is delivering internal cleaning and some grounds maintenance. We are still checking the external areas of blocks so we can ensure that any health and safety hazards such as dumped rubbish are dealt with. Please remember to ask the council to remove any unwanted items from your property, do not leave them in communal areas where they are a fire hazard.
If you’re worried that you or someone else might be affected by domestic abuse, we can – in complete confidence – put you in touch with organisations that can support you.
As a result of staff now working from home, our offices are closed but we are trying to offer as normal a service as possible. If you have not already done so, please register for the My Tenancy portal on our website. You can report repairs, check your rent balance and make payments from your smartphone, computer, tablet or other device.
