Advice on Coronavirus COVID-19

COVID-19 advice header

We want to let you know that we’re closely monitoring the situation around Coronavirus COVID-19.

We’ll do our utmost to maintain essential services though we have little choice but to do some things a bit differently for the time being. One of these areas is repairs. On 8am Thursday 19 March, we moved to an emergency repairs service only.

Proposed changes to service charges

Service charges consultation resumes from 20 July and will run until 11 September 2020

We’re consulting all tenants in our sheltered housing, extra care and independent living schemes on proposals on schemes and for service charges to help pay for the services you receive now that Government funding is no longer available for them.

We had consulted around 1,000 households before the start of lockdown and we would have ideally liked to have continued doing this by discussing it face-to-face with everyone as we started and intended. While we can’t delay the consultation on this basis as we don’t know when it would be possible to do this safely, we have moved the proposed implementation date for changes back from 1 October 2020 to 5 April 2021. By resuming consultation now, with those of you who we haven't previously met with, we can give you time to understand what the changes would mean for your individual circumstances.

If you live in a Bolton at Home sheltered housing, extra care or independent living schemes, and you haven’t had a previous visit from us, over the next few weeks you will receive a detailed customer information pack through the post relating to the proposed service changes affecting your scheme and the new charges associated with these changes. We will also be asking you for your individual communication preferences to ensure you’re consulted and you will have the opportunity to speak to either your Sheltered Housing Support Officer or support officer who regularly contacts you with any questions you may have.

These changes will also affect tenants and residents who receive Careline but don’t live at a sheltered housing, extra care or independent living scheme, and you will receive a different letter in the post.
