Stockport Homes Achieves National ASB Accreditation
Published by Anonymous for Stockport Homes in Housing and also in Care and Support, Communities
Stockport Homes has achieved accreditation for their Anti-Social Behaviour service for the second time under a process which requires social landlords to show just how effective they are in tackling anti-social behaviour.
The anti-social behaviour accreditation service, which was launched by HouseMark and the Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group in 2010, is the first of its kind and allows landlords, like Stockport Homes, to demonstrate to its tenants and partners how it is responding to one of tenants' key concerns.
The accreditation process is designed to offer an independent assessment of the ASB service, providing a robust and critical challenge to ensure continual improvement and Landlords volunteering for accreditation have their anti-social behaviour service assessed against a series of 'ASB Commitments and Building Blocks' every three years which are based on regulatory expectations, sector best practice, and which mirror the ASB Respect Charter
HouseMark awarded re-accreditation to Stockport Homes in February 2014, recognising the improvements and good practice that has been developed since 2010; the assessment listed 17 examples of good practice.
April Higson Director of Neighbourhoods and Support said: “Stockport Homes is committed to working with the Council, Police and other agencies to tackle ASB in Stockport. This re-accreditation confirms that Stockport Homes continues to provide an excellent ASB service, which effectively tackles ASB issues on its estates
