Our office at the Stables is now open for telephone calls and appointments only

Office Opening Times

The wellbeing of our tenants, staff and wider community is our priority and as Scottish Guidance has changed the way in which we deliver our services has changed also.

Our phones lines are now open from 9am – 12 noon and from 1pm – 4pm with the exception of Wednesday when the lines close at 12 noon and remain closed in the afternoon in order that staff training can take place and the office can be deep cleaned.  

As restriction levels are changing, office appointments will be introduced shortly on a strict appointment basis only.  House visits are limited and the majority of appointments will still be held via the telephone. All services are still being carried out which includes Housing Options, letting properties, anti-social behaviour, estate maintenance, repairs and rent management. 

Please do not hesitate to telephone the office if you have any queries at this time.

Repairs

Our number one priority has been to keep customers and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, while still providing as wide a range of services as practically possible.We know how important the repairs service is for our residents.The easing of lockdown restrictions from 26 April 2021 means that non-essential repair work can take place in people’s homes. Over the coming weeks we plan to deliver a catch-up programme of work to deal with the routine, follow-up and non-urgent repairs that had been put on hold. There may still be a limited number of repairs we can’t do, however please be assured that our staff team and contractors will follow all health-and-safety guidelines, including wearing Personal Protective Equipment as and when appropriate. 

We will continue to request specific information surrounding Covid-19 when planning any repairs.

If you need to report a repair, contact us on 0141 634 2673 or you can email us at housing@cassiltoun.org.uk

Coronavirus - Advice & Information

For the latest update on Coronavirus isolation timeline please click here

This current strain of coronavirus is known as novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).  The outbreak first began in December 2019 in Wuhan, China.

Coronavirus is a respiratory disease which seems to start with a high temperature or fever, followed by a dry cough.  After a week, it leads to shortness of breath and some patients require hospital treatment. In more severe cases, coronavirus can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, multiple organ failure and even death.

Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease), are more likely to become severely ill.

The World Health Organisation advises the incubation period - between infection and showing any symptoms - lasts up to 14 days.
There is currently no vaccine for coronavirus however there are things we can all do to prevent it from spreading such as:-

• Regularly and thoroughly washing your hands.
• coughing and sneezing into tissues
• not touching your face with unwashed hands, and;
• trying to avoid close contact with infected people

Cassiltoun Housing Association are continuing to monitor the daily updates on the coronavirus from NHS Inform to ensure we are following the correct guidance to keep staff and customers safe from infection. 

If you think you may have been infected with the coronavirus you must call the NHS 24 telephone service on 111 for further advice.
