coronavirus update

The latest changes in coronavirus restrictions have created new challenges for our repairs service, with more than 10% of our frontline staff being asked to isolate.

We’ve made some temporary changes to services and from Tuesday, 20 July, we will only be handling essential repairs requests until further notice.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

These changes will be reviewed weekly and a full repairs service will be resumed as soon as possible.

believe housing makes new environment pledge

22 April 2021 - Latest news, environmental news

Cutting emissions, changing behaviours and finding more sustainable alternatives are at the heart of a new pledge from one of the region’s biggest home providers.

believe housing has launched its first ever environmental pledge on Earth Day as it takes new steps to prevent climate change. The County Durham-based housing association has made a series of commitments to work with customers and ensure that everything the organisation does is geared towards a low-carbon future.

The commitments include supporting community environmental initiatives and projects to improve neighbourhoods, moving to low-carbon vehicles, working with customers to reduce fuel poverty while cutting emissions, and using sustainable or recycled materials wherever possible.

A number of green activities and updates have been used to mark the launch with volunteers from believe housing heading out to areas around County Durham to make a tangible difference in communities.

Executive Director of Communities and Customer Services, Nik Turner, said: “This pledge is designed to bring all of our environmental thinking into one, easy to understand place. Tackling climate change is a huge issue, but we’ll only achieve it by making small and measurable steps that everyone can understand.

“This pledge is full of those little steps that add up into a major commitment to reduce emissions and improve the environment.

“We’ve already shown how seriously we’re taking our environmental responsibilities by becoming the first housing association to achieve the Carbon Neutral International Standard. We want to keep building on that achievement and lead the way in reducing the environmental impact of housing.”
