Corona Virus (Covid-19)

During the current period of uncertainty DWP Housing has implemented a series of measures to protect both employees and their families, as well as our tenants.
Our offices will be closed to the public from Monday 23rd March.

Our maintenance department will only be dealing with requests where there is an immediate risk to safety or essential works are needed such as water supply, sanitation and heating failure. For maintenance requests please call the usual number 01202 301244.

As a further precautionary measure DWP Housing have temporarily suspended viewings of available properties to let. Our commitment to our tenants and employees always remains our priority as we continue through these uncertain times. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter and will provide an update as soon as further information becomes available.

  • Rachelle was very efficient polite and welcoming and always kept me in the picture with regards to my moving in date, thank you!

    Mr Norgrove | Westbourne

  • Thanks everyone at DWP we’ve now bought our own flat, having been able to save a deposit because of your cheap rent. A big thanks to the maintenance team the guys always made me feel very comfortable when they came in to do any work. We have no complaints – if anything didn’t work – the maintenance team would come out and fix it. My cooker broke, they sent a new one within a couple of days. We’ve been very well looked after.

  • After hearing so many bad reports about DWP I was very hesitant with going with yourselves. Everything I had heard was unfounded. Bex and Jo really looked after me well and are a real asset to DWP. All I wanted was to be treated how I like to be treated and I was. I am very happy!!
