All repair visits take into account the latest guidance from the Government and the Health and Safety Executive. When you book a repair and before starting work, we will ask if anyone in your home is shielding, self-isolating or showing any symptoms of COVID-19. If someone in your household is self-isolating or has tested positive for the virus, we will only carry out emergency work in certain circumstances.

Questions are asked to protect you and our colleagues.  

Keeping you and your home safe

Our priority is the health, wellbeing and safety of our customers and colleagues. We are following all of the latest Government and NHS advice, and we can assure you we are doing all that we can to help protect our customers and their homes during this period of uncertainty.

If you are reporting a repair with our Customer Service Centre or we are arranging a Gas Service we will be asking additional questions to ensure we safeguard you and our colleagues before arranging a home visit.

Our team have suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) and will wear what is appropriate for the task. Our colleagues will have anti-bacterial wipes for the surfaces they need to touch. We will ask you to follow social distancing guidelines and stand at least two metres away from our colleagues where you can.

All trades operatives will show you identification when they visit your home. Please check this and once you are satisfied you are can leave our colleague or contractor to carry out their work. When the appointment or work is completed they will let you know they have finished and are leaving and they will see themselves out.

Gas and Electrical Servicing, and compliance checks.

We will continue to carry out all Gas and Electrical Servicing, and compliance checks within our properties during this time. These services are carried out to keep you, your home and your neighbours safe.

Lettings

We are letting properties in areas where there is a local lockdown, where it is safe to do so and for those customers who are vulnerable such as:

  • People fleeing from domestic abuse and violence
  • Moving customers from temporary accommodation
  • People discharged from hospital
  • Those living in un-safe accommodation, or without settled accommodation, which poses a risk to their health.

Supported housing and retirement living

In supported housing and retirement living services we are closing some communal areas to protect customers in these locations. We are also restricting visitors to services to only essential visitors. Outdoor spaces remain open for the use of customers only with social distancing.
