  • When we had nowhere to go and no chance of succeeding anywhere, DWP took us in. Ever since day one they have been fantastic. The guys on the desks at the front are amazing and have always been so approachable. Not once had a problem in our dealings with them. We appreciate all the help and if you are after a property they look after you. Thank you to the team!

  • 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.
