Be a WGHC Buddy
If you are a WGHC Tenant and would like to be “buddy up” with another WGHC tenant during this lockdown period please contact us and ask to speak to a member of our Housing Management Team. With the relevant permissions, we can put you in touch with someone for you to keep in regular contact with by phone or social media. Being a buddy can be anything from making a quick phone call for a friendly chat to offering to help with shopping. Above all, it is simply about keeping tenants connected, especially for those who may be living on their own or for those who do not have any immediate family living nearby. WGHC staff are currently in regular contact with many of our tenants during this difficult period. Please remember we are here to help and listen. Stay safe and well.
