Winter Gritting Services for Housing Associations

“...the communal areas have never looked as good as they have since GRITIT GM took over. Not only that, but the team are considered part of our community, on first name terms and always willing to help if they can ...”

Project Coordinator and Tenant, National Housing Association

GRITIT keeps numerous housing associations safe during winter for their residents across the UK. GRITIT's reporting, experience, account management, high service levels, ease of management for court managers and scheme managers, care and attention, consistent local teams and fantastic levels of reporting are just some of the reasons housing associations look to GRITIT to solve their issues.

Many, if not all housing sites have vulnerable residents - i.e. elderly, special needs, disabilities etc. and GRITIT understands the level of care that is needed to support them in providing a safe winter environment for the residents in winter. We take care and go the extra mile to look after the residents. Ie noise and light pollution at night - we instruct our operatives to turn off the vehicle when gritting pedestrian areas to minimise vehicle idling noise which might upset the residents, and turn beacons off when travelling around the site to stop flashing lights coming through the residents windows. And of course, GRITIT is proud to provide local employment and training for the folks working on our housing association sites such as Housing&Care21 and Together Housing
