Report a Repair

We can help you keep your home in good condition through our repairs service for tenants and information about simple fixes and maintenance.

The speed in which we respond to your repair will be dependent on what’s wrong and how urgent the repair is. A full breakdown of repair timescales can be found below.

There are a number of ways you can report a repair:

Call our Housing Services Team on 03300552679
Email us at info@alphasupportedhousing.org.uk
Call into your local office and report a repair in person.
If you live in one of our housing schemes, you can contact any member of staff at the service.

When you report a repair, we will need to know:

Your name and address
A contact telephone number or email
A detailed description of the repair i.e. what needs repairing and where the repair is
Confirmation of a convenient time for us to carry out the repair.
