Richmond Housing Partnership (RHP) hosted the Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group (SLCNG) meeting on Tuesday 24 January and shared its experience of trialling new approaches to ASB.
The group comprises of a number of social landlords from across the UK that use the network to share best practice and resources to reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB).
As a leading light in the management of ASB, RHP was selected as the only social landlord to take part in a pioneering Home Office pilot last year, investigating how to better support ASB victims. RHP’s ASB Manager, Ian Whiteway, presented the initial findings of this report to delegates on Tuesday.
The RHP team were praised by the author of the Home Office report – due to be finalised soon – as demonstrating excellence in collaborative working with other agencies to ensure the best outcome for victims. The team were also selected to present two workshops with the Home Office’s Researcher on Crime and Policing, Geraldine Brown, at the SLCNG meeting in Birmingham in November.
ASB Advisor, Andrew Nowakowski, says: “We are delighted that our presentations were so well received. Our organisation’s honest and helpful service style and focus on excellent customer service shapes our approach to ASB, and we have a complete commitment to fixing a problem fast to last.”
