Our ASB team provide a risk and victim-focused service, and will work in partnership with other agencies such as local authorities, the police and support services in resolving anti-social behaviour in our communities. The types of behaviours we will investigate include:
- hate-related incidents (racist/ homophobic)
- physical violence
- domestic abuse
- all drug-related activity
- noise nuisance
- youth anti-social behaviour
- neighbour disputes (not personal disputes)
- alcohol-related nuisance
- harassment (verbal abuse, threats, intimidation)
- criminal behaviour
- threats of violence
- sex working or sexually inappropriate behaviour.
Most of these issues may also be criminal offences and we would ask that you report these matters to the police before you speak to us, especially if you believe your welfare is a risk. This will help us decide what action is appropriate, and most importantly, keep you safe.
Our ASB team is trained to respond to reports of domestic abuse, and understand how difficult it can be to report if this is happening to you. We understand there are different types of abuse and how to assess the risks a victim is facing.
As your landlord we may not be able to provide all the answers, however, we work closely with all organisations who can help you and make sure you are fully supported. If you are affected by domestic abuse, including honour-based violence, please contact us.
You can also contact the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0800 247 2000. This is a 24-hour helpline run in partnership by Refuge and Women’s Aid.
