News and Events

  • Estuary Housing Association would like to advise residents to be vigilant when receiving unexpected mailings or other forms of documentation that inform of a contractual agreement for maintenance on their property. It has been brought to our attention that individuals are receiving realistic looking documentation, carrying the Estuary Housing Association logo, by a company called ‘Task Group’ and requesting sums of money for quarterly maintenance.

    In the event you are sent one of these counterfeit notifications:

    Do not send any money

    Do not supply any personal information such as bank accounts, credit cards, or national insurance numbers

    If you receive one of these fraudulent notifications, we recommended that you contact your local police on 101 and also make us aware on 0300 304 5000.

    Who is it for?

    LifeWorks is available to anyone who has been in the Armed Forces, regardless of when and how long they served for.

    Where is it?

    LifeWorks is run at various locations across the UK and at RBLI's Training Centre in Aylesford, Kent.

    There is a LifeWorks course in Colchester from 4th-8th July.
