Which blocks of flats will we be working in? High rise blocks with three or more storeys

What do we need you to do? It’s really important that you allow us into your home to ensure that everyone in your block benefits from these improvements, and we thank you for your cooperation.

All FCHO staff and contractors we work with always carry photo ID.

If someone visits your home claiming to be from FCHO or a firm linked with us, always check their ID. If you’re still suspicious about them, call our Contact Centre on 0161 393 7117.

When will we be working at your block of flats? Work started at Littlemoor House in August 2021 and this is expected to be complete in November 2021.

Following this, the investment programme will take place across the remaining blocks of flats with three or more storeys.

We will contact you to let you know when work in your block will be underway.
