Changes to WDH’s services at Normanton Service Access Point (SAP)


Changes to WDH’s services at Normanton Service Access Point (SAP)

Published 21 September 2016

The way that people access our services is changing.  Over the last few years there has been a reduction in the number of people using our Service Access Points (SAPs) and an increase in people self-serving and completing  transactions online. It is because of these changes that we will be closing Normanton SAP on Friday 30 September 2016.

You can access our services in a number of ways, at a time that suits you:

• visit www.wdh.co.uk for advice, information and answers to the most frequently asked questions;

• register for an online account to pay your rent and any other WDH invoice as well as log a repair; and

• phone OneCALL on 0345 8 507 507, 24 hours a day, every day.


If you need help to get online our Digital Angels can provide you with any support you need.  For an appointment contact OneCALL  on 0345 8 507 507 and ask to speak to a member of our Engagement Team.
