We are committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity and providing a safe and secure environment for people to live in and visit.
Harassment can take many forms including, physical, verbal and non-verbal.
We will not tolerate harassment and will work with the Police and other agencies to deal with and prevent harassment. Residents will also be held responsible for the actions of anyone living in or visiting their homes.
Reports of harassment
Whenever we receive a report of harassment involving our tenants or leaseholders, we will where possible, respond within one working day and produce a plan of action within three working days. We will work with other agencies and in partnership with the police to make sure that a range of services and support are available to people suffering from harassment.
If you feel that you are in immediate danger as a result of serious harassment, please phone the Police.
If you are not ready to report harassment, we would advise you to confide in someone that you trust and if you feel comfortable, take them with you to tell the harasser to stop. Tell the harasser that you dislike their behaviour and let them know in writing (keep a copy of the letter if you do this). Keep a note of dates and times of each incident and what happened. Reconsider reporting the harassment if it does not stop.
