Fire safety

The tragedy at Grenfell Tower has highlighted a number of issues with fire safety on a national level.

Keeping customers safe is our utmost priority, and we have been working with our team to ensure that the fire safety within our properties, particularly the high rise blocks, is the best if can possibly be.

We work very closely with Greater Manchester Fire Authority and all our high rise blocks meet the strict fire safety regulations, with regular inspections and Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) by independent fire safety assessors.

We are reviewing all relevant fire safety documentation as a precautionary measure, and continuing to work closely with the fire authority and other key partners, to ensure the safety of our customers is maintained and to provide additional reassurance.

If you live in Lamport, Lockton, Silkin or Artillery Court please see the high rise section for an update on your fire policy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call: 0300 555 0128, email or pop into the S4B housing office and speak to a member of the team.
