Customer update: fire safety

Following the shocking events at Grenfell Tower in London, Connect Housing would like to reassure customers our properties conform with rigorous fire safety standards and that we take the safety of all our residents very seriously.

We carry out fire risk assessments and work with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service to comply with all safety requirements. We undertake regular fire safety inspections of all communal areas, ensuring all shared fire detection and emergency systems are serviced and tested and any obstructions in the areas removed.

You can read more about our commitment to fire safety and advice for tenants here.

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the tragedy at Grenfell Tower.

We, like the other group members, were set up following the ‘Cathy Come Home’ BBC television drama directed by Ken Loach in 1966. This November will mark the 50th anniversary of this drama, which highlighted the plight of a homeless family and inspired people to form housing associations. Find out more.
