Wythenshawe Works is the department that repairs and maintains your home. We are based at Greenwood Road and from here our teams provide a range of repair and maintenance services.

Always report any repairs you need straightaway. You also have some repairing responsibilities and there are some occasions when we can recharge you for repairs we complete. Please see our Rechargeable Repairs Policy for more details.

When a repair is our responsibility, we can sort out your repair quicker when you tell us:

  • When you will be home.
  • Contact phone numbers – daytime and evening.

For smaller jobs, you can use our Handyperson Service.
