George Floyd Statement
We are horrified by the manner in which George Floyd lost his life and we share the global response wanting truth and accountability. Odu-Dua Housing Association has always stood for the ideals of equality, understanding, and respect. We can’t simply hope and wish for these things, we need to lead through our actions. We stand with our tenants, employees, partners, and all stakeholders in being committed to championing the change we need. We need to be honest about confronting racism and abuse of power. We can and must demand equality for everyone. We can and will respond by committing to being part of the solution.

Coronavirus Update 20th May 2020
Our offices are now closed and staff are working from home insofar as this is possible. Please continue to contact us by phone to access your housing and repairs services but please bear with us if you experience more difficulty than usual in getting through. Our staff are still working and you should continue to contact us for all rent enquiries or if you need assistance with any other matter relating to your tenancy. We are starting to experience more constraints on the availability of contractors to carry out works. We advise you to continue reporting all repairs to us in the usual manner and we will tell you if we are able to carry out your repair. All genuine emergencies will be attended to but we may have to defer other minor works to a future point in time when the restrictions on social distancing and movement of people are lifted. Gas appliance checks continue to be required by law and if your check is now due or will become due shortly, we will still send a gas engineer to perform the check. They will be doing this will full regard to the need to protect the well-being of the household in which the check is being performed and their own safety. If you have any questions about your gas check, please call us.
Your rent is still payable during this time but if you have any difficulty in paying your rent you should let us know.
