Coronavirus - home visits, repairs and office closures
Radius is implementing the following measures in response to the spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in Northern Ireland and in keeping with the Northern Ireland Executive pathway to recovery .
Our offices in Holywood, Lisburn Road, Newry and Derry/Londonderry are open to the public by appointment only. We will strive to continue delivering services whilst minimising face-to-face contact as much as possible to ensure the safety of all our staff, tenants and residents.
Due to the ongoing
situation arising from Coronavirus we are concentrating on repairs that are
emergency and urgent works of a health and safety nature along with external routine works.
Radius staff and contractors will implement an enhanced risk assessment before visiting any home or scheme. We will have to ask a number of questions to determine your household’s health before we make a decision to complete a visit. Please do not be offended by this, our staff and our tenants and residents health is of paramount importance to us.
Housing with Care Schemes
We have asked that relatives, friends and the public do not visit any of our housing with care schemes until further notice.
Until further notice sheltered housing scheme communal gatherings have been cancelled. This includes lunch clubs, coffee mornings, use of the hairdressing facilities etc. We ask that non-essential visits to sheltered schemes are avoided until further notice and no more than one visitor at a time.
Customers facing financial difficulties as a result of the on-going emergency should telephone their Housing Officer for further advice. We will have a sensitive approach to those in financial difficulty.
Please note that staff will not be carrying out home visits until further notice.
If any of our tenants, residents or next of kin wish to speak to our team please contact us on 03301230888.
