About us

All Southdown tenants have a dedicated Housing Officer who oversee each tenancy and provide support as needed. Housing Officers ensure that rent is paid, that tenants’ concerns are responded to and that the conditions of each tenancy are adhered to.

Our Property Services team oversee all aspects of property maintenance and development. This includes day-to-day and emergency repairs, refurbishments and property safety checks.

Our Central Housing team oversee delivery of our tenant involvement and tenant support services including the Tenancy Sustainment Service and financial inclusion advice.  The team also oversee our Housing team’s systems, which support the smooth delivery of our services to our tenants.

Our Director of Housing & Business Services leads on development of new opportunities to provide affordable supported housing for people, as well as overseeing the Housing team as a whole.
