Southway is continuously monitoring the Coronavirus situation locally and following Government advice. The safety and wellbeing of customers and staff is our highest priority. We will be continuing to deliver key services but in the safest ways possible.


To continue to put tenants' and staff's health and safety first, our policy remains the same as the past few weeks; we are still only carrying out emergency and urgent repairs, with strict social distancing and safety measures in place.

We’re working hard to bring back these non-emergency repairs safely and will be making a further announcement about this in mid-July. From there, the service may take a little longer while we deal with the backlog.

For more information see "Home visits and repairs" below, which we will update as and when there are any changes to our policy.

We will update this area as and when new information becomes available.
