“STAY AT HOME”
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Tollcross Housing Association continues to take the necessary steps and precautions to try and minimise the risk to our customers and staff. Since the first lockdown in March 2020, our offices remain closed to the public and following regular Scottish Government instructions and guidelines (the most recent being January 2021), our offices will remain closed to the general public until further notice. We have made arrangements so that staff members can work remotely from home. As we are aiming to keep essential services going for our customers, we can still be contacted by telephone, email or through the ‘contact us’ form on our website.

If you have any repairs issues you are concerned about please continue to contact the Maintenance team on 0141 763 1317 option 1, where staff will be happy to assist and advise you on what will be done and when.
Some minor repairs will remain on our list to pick up when we are able to return to full service safely. We would like to say a huge thanks to our tenants for enabling us to carry out these services during these unprecedented times.
Bulk Uplift - Please do not leave bulk items outside in the street. An appointment to pick up bulky items must be arranged through Glasgow City Council's website at www.glasgow.gov.uk/bulkywaste where you will also find up to date information on the service.
As the office is closed to the public, we are making contact with our tenants and other customers over the phone. We are still prioritising re-housing and of course, following safety guidelines to do so. Despite the safety measures, we are also still managing to address anti-social behaviour issues and neighbour disputes. We are grateful to those who raise these issues for their continued patience as we work through them.
Our Sheltered Housing Support staff continue to maintain contact with our tenants at these sites. The staff at our Advice and Learning Centre are still available and you can call them on 0141 764 1234 to arrange assistance with financial advice. You can e-mail them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are aware that customers’ circumstances can change and even more so during this time. So, if you have a change in circumstances that could affect your rent or factoring payments, please get in touch as soon as possible so that we can help and minimise the risk of you going into arrears.
We can’t thank our tenants and other customers enough for their support and patience during this unprecedented period and we hope to be back to full service as soon as it is safe to do so. If anything changes we will let you know.
In the meantime we ask that you follow the Scottish Government guidance, www.gov.scot/coronavirus
