Don't suffer in silence, get in touch.10 July 2020

Published 10 July 2020
As you may already be aware we are pleased to have reintroduced a number of our services over the last few weeks and this is a great step forward for us, marking the return of some normality for you and our employees. I appreciate that many of you will still be nervous about welcoming people into your home but I can assure you we will only do so safely and have introduced additional safety and hygiene measures to keep you and our employees safe. Whilst we may be seeing the opening of pubs and restaurants across the district, we are aware that for many people it will be some time before they feel able to return to every day life. For some this may be down to nervousness around the virus, and for others it may be a result of the impact the pandemic has had on work and finances. For those of you who have been impacted in this way I would like to encourage you to get in touch. We have a range of services available including Employment Advisors who can help if you are currently unemployed, facing unemployment or looking for another job. They can provide great advice and support, whatever your situation. For anyone who is worried about money, we have a number of support services including Cash Wise who can help with budgeting, benefits and accessing financial help or food parcels. Our Debt Team are also available to provide support if you are concerned about paying your rent. If you are worried, please don’t suffer in silence. Contact us and we will discuss which of our services can make life a little easier.

Thank you for your feedback12 June 2020

Published 12 June 2020
Firstly, I’d like to thank all of you who took the time to give us your feedback through our recent tenant survey. We are using your feedback to prioritise the remobilisation of our services. As I said in my message last week, we will be starting to reopen our Hubs and Service Access Points across the district shortly, so that those of you who need to speak to us face to face can do so, but in a safe environment. Some of the other things you said were important to you included our grounds maintenance service, which returned last month and is now operating a full service, and our repairs and maintenance service. Whilst we have been focused on carrying out emergency repairs only throughout the lockdown period, we are now looking at how we can reintroduce essential repairs and maintenance services in a way that is safe for both our customers and our employees. We hope to resume essential repairs and maintenance later this month and appreciate the patience and understanding you have shown.
