You will have already received a Respect booklet from Circle Anglia, the housing group to which we belong. This explains our commitment to tackling antisocial behaviour and ways we can support victims. We have also launched a website, www.circleangliarespect.org, which contains local and national helplines, and local case-studies to show how we are preventing and tackling antisocial behaviour for our residents.
Signing up to the Respect standard showed our commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour in our communities. Following on from this, Wherry Housing Association has introduced a number of new local services for our customers to prevent antisocial behaviour from happening and to support victims when it does.
We have introduced a 24 / 7 hour hotline to report antisocial behaviour and domestic violence and mediation and victim support services. We are also strengthening our Neighbourhood Team, by recruiting a dedicated antisocial behaviour co-ordinator and two more community wardens.
Residents also have an important part to play in the fight against antisocial behaviour. In May, Circle Anglia launched the Peer Support Network – where our residents can volunteer to become a mentor and support people experiencing antisocial behaviour in their neighbourhood.
Please visit our Respect website to find out about these services and more, including how you can join us in the fight against antisocial behaviour.
