Our commitments to you during the coronavirus crisis
06 Apr 2020
We’re working closely with our residents, local government, the NHS and others to respond to the coronavirus crisis.
We understand that many of our residents will be worried about your income during these difficult times. That’s why, as part of a national response set up by the National Housing Federation, we committed to the following during the coronavirus outbreak:
1. Keeping people secure at home
No one will be evicted from a housing association home as a result of financial hardship caused by coronavirus.
2. Helping people to get the support they need
Housing associations are helping residents to access benefits and other support to alleviate financial hardship.
3. Acting compassionately and quickly where people are struggling
Housing associations are working with residents to understand how they can help them. This can include flexibility on collecting rent where that would make a difference. Any resident worried about paying their rent should contact their housing association, who will want to help.
We’re here to help
We understand that the current situation will put pressure on household finances for many. If you are in any doubt about your ability to pay rent, please call us to discuss your circumstances. We will listen and do our best to help you find a way through. Here are the ways you can contact us.
