Covid-19 Latest Information

UPDATED 04/11/2020

Dear Tenants and Support Team

These past few months have been a challenging time for everyone. The safety and wellbeing of our tenants is always our priority. Throughout the pandemic New Foundations have been in regular contact with both you and your support teams to ensure your safety and comfort.

The advice from government changes regularly and New Foundations will always try to keep you informed when things change.

From Thursday 5th November 2020 the government have announced a new national lockdown up until Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

This means:

Stay at home – You must not leave your home, or be outside your home except for certain reasons which include:

Shopping for essential items such as food and medicine.

Receiving support or care

Work including voluntary work that can not be done from your home.

To receive medical treatment, such as visiting the doctor.

Exercise with people in you household or your support bubble.

What this means for repairs and maintenance:

The government guidance explains that works can continue where necessary. New Foundations will continue to carry out the planned works that are already scheduled for November. In addition, as with the first lockdown in March 2020, New Foundations will attend to carry out any urgent or emergency works in your home. Contractors will always ask your permission before visiting and if you or your support team do not want them to visit, then New Foundations will do their best to rearrange for a time when you feel more comfortable.

If you have any worries at all about a member of the team visiting your home, please get in touch and we will do everything we can to help.

If you have a repair or fault in your home, as always, you can report this to our office on 01706 835333 or through the website via the ‘report a fault’ section.

For updated information about Covid -19 go to the http://www.newfoundations.co.uk/downloads/ section, you can also print this information to share with your fellow tenants and your support team.
