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.
