The health and wellbeing of our customers is our top priority. The below frequently asked questions explain how we’re responding to the outbreak to help keep you, our colleagues and contractors safe.
I am feeling anxious and I’m struggling with social distancing/self-isolation, do you have any advice?
We understand this is an unsettling time and there are lots of ways that we can support you.
We’ve launched a new wellbeing project to connect you to vital support services, offering practical and emotional advice and help you during these challenging times. Find out more about our wellbeing project.
You only need to let us know if you’re self-isolating for the following reasons:
- You live alone and need support while you self-isolate
- If you are due an essential safety check in your home, or we need to access your home for an emergency repair
- If self-isolation means you cannot work affecting your ability to pay your rent
- You need help accessing benefits to help you financially while you are in self-isolation
Go to our financial support FAQs for more information on help with rent and benefits while in self-isolation
We are carrying out wellbeing telephone calls for all our elderly or more vulnerable residents, to check in with them and see if they need any additional support. However, if you are worried about someone please contact us on 0300 456 2099 or send us an email and our wellbeing team will arrange to contact them.
The most important thing to do is to stay home to help keep your friends, family and neighbours safe.
However, there are things you can do to help keep your neighbours informed with important updates. We’re regularly updating our website, social media channels and have also sent out letters and emails, but we want to make sure our communities are helping one another to stay informed in a safe way too. You can:
- Share updates through community Facebook pages
- Share updates in Whatsapp groups
- Retweet our Twitter post to your followers
- Share our Facebook post with your friends
- Let us know your email address so we can include you in our regular email updates
If you have read all our FAQs and you haven’t found the answer to your question, please send us an email or call 0300 456 2099.
