Resources for residents

It can be difficult to know who to turn to if you have questions about building safety or cladding. We are here to help but you may also want some independent advice, or to speak to other people in a similar situation.

  • Support from your local fire brigade

    The London Fire Brigade offers the Home Fire Safety Checker - a free online tool which guides you through an assessment of your home, helping you to uncover fire risks and giving you tailored advice.

    If you live in London, for more vulnerable residents or those at higher risk, you can book a Home Fire Safety Visit from your local fire crew.

    If you live in Hertfordshire, you can request a 'Safe and Well' Home Visit.

Setting up a residents association (RA)

You may find it useful to set up a residents association (RA) at your block or estate if you are affected by building safety issues. We offer support in setting up an RA, but this differs depending on where you live.

  • If you are a Network Homes resident, you can get in touch with the Network Homes resident engagement team.

    More info about RAs at Network
  • If you live on the Stockwell Park estate, please get in touch with SW9 Community Housing's resident engagement team.
