We were extremely saddened to hear the tragic news about two-year-old Awaab Ishak who died from a respiratory condition caused by prolonged exposure to mould in a property owned by a housing association in Rochdale, in the north of England.
We have read news reports which show that his father, Faisal Abdullah, had repeatedly raised the issue with their housing provider, but no action was taken.
This is a very difficult time for many people, and our thoughts are with Awaab’s family and loved ones.
We wanted to remind all settle residents that we take reports of any type of mould in any of our properties extremely seriously.
Let us know about any mould in your home
