Information for Tenants
We are presently carefully considering which maintenance items we will attend in person, in light of the present Corona virus pandemic. We ask that you still get in touch with all maintenance concerns or queries, especially if it is an emergency, in the usual way.
We still intend to send contractors where required, but we are taking care to only send them when necessary, for the protection of our tenants as well as our tradespeople. It may be that we discuss more items over the phone/or email to see if they can be resolved before we send someone to the property. We want to stress that we still want you to report any issues to us as usual.
We are sending the email below to all of our tenants as a pre-emptive measure, in case a visit by a Surveyor or tradesperson is required in future. Can you please look at the list and come back to us if you have any questions.
We will continue to monitor the situation and we will update the measures below as required.
Below is a list of measures that we will be taking in the circumstances that a visit to a property is required:

Information for new applications
Due to the uncertainty of the current situation we have made to the discussion not to accept any new grant applications in 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and assess the impact on the Charity’s finances. The Board of Trustees will meet in July 2020 to decide if the Charity is in a position to make new grants in September 2020. If so, Katharine (Grants and Office Administrator) will contact those who have expressed an interest in applying. If not, we hope to open up applications again in January 2021. For more information please contact Katharine.
