Govanhill Housing Association Service Update

Samaritan House: New Opening Hours 

The reception area at Samaritan House is now open initially on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00-12:00 and 13.30-15:30.  

You will be able to come into the office and make an appointment to see a staff member if required. You will not be able to wait in the office to see someone but will be given an appointment to come back at a later time. 

Covid can be a serious or indeed fatal infection for some people and we are opening up as fast as we can while still trying to keep our customers, staff and contractors as safe as possible.

What we ask of Customers 

  • Phone or Email the Association in the first instance to see if we can assist without an appointment 
  • If you need a face-to-face appointment these can be made in advance by emailing or phoning a member of staff as well as by attending our reception  
  • If you are attending a face-to-face appointment, only the person with the appointment will be allowed to enter the building.  
  • You will be contacted in advance of the appointment so we can talk through the safe working process we have in place.
  • Wear a face covering unless you are exempt. Our staff will also be wearing face masks for your safety and theirs.
