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:

  • As much information as possible.
  • When you will be home.
  • Contact phone numbers – daytime and evening

For smaller jobs, you can use our Handyperson Service.

All our staff and contractors carry identification, but if you are not sure about their identity please call us to check.  You can also set up a password which any visitor to your property must tell you before you let them in.
