Message from South Essex Homes
We are taking our lead on our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) directly from information provided by the Government and from the Director of Public Health here in Southend.
We understand that you, our residents, may be concerned and we would direct you to the same Government information source that we use to determine our actions. The following web address provides the most up to date advice available - https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
Whilst it is difficult to foresee how the situation will progress over coming weeks and months, it is likely that our staffing levels will be affected, and therefore the service you receive from us will be impacted. This is likely to involve non-urgent meetings and estate visits being cancelled, so you may not see as much of our staff members as you would usually.
Please be assured that we are putting plans in place in an attempt to keep service disruptions to a minimum.
We would urge you to look out for your neighbours and members of your community who may be most vulnerable and help each other out where possible.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time - please stay at home and keep washing your hands.
We will continue to keep you informed of any developments, so please keep an eye on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) section of our website for further updates.
