The health, safety and wellbeing of our

is extremely important to us.

We work hard to make sure that the homes we provide are safe and great places to live.

Here's some information about keeping yourself safe in the home.

Fire safety

The tragic events at Grenfell Tower show how the management of fire risk is more important than ever.

We want to raise the bar of fire safety in our high-rise buildings and establish a new standard of safety.

Fire safety is everyone's responsibility.

Our responsibility

As your landlord, we have a responsibility to ensure that the communal areas are kept safe.

Your responsibility

Keep yourself safe and not do anything which could put yourself or other people at risk of fire.

Asbestos

It’s important to remember to tell us if you accidentally damage walls, ceilings or floors or if you find damage.

You must also always contact us first if you’re planning home improvements. We can check our records and see if your home is likely to contain asbestos and where it is.

We've put together a guide to asbestos. It outlines:

  • what asbestos is

  • where you might find asbestos

  • hope asbestos affects health

  • how asbestos can be made safe

You can download the guide using the link at the bottom of the page.

Important to know

You may have to pay to get the asbestos cleaned up and made safe if;

  • you disturb asbestos while doing DIY

  • someone else works on your home without our permission

This is an important part of your tenancy agreement. If you do not let us know about your DIY plans you will breach the terms of your tenancy agreement.
