Keeping you safe

Keeping you safe

As a social landlord we take anti-social behaviour (ASB) very seriously indeed, and see it as our duty to tackle it in all its forms.

We have specialist staff who are experts in dealing with anti-social behaviour (ASB) and domestic abuse, offering appropriate support to both victims and perpetrators (the person responsible).

To help our neighbours feel safe and secure by preventing and minimising antisocial behaviour (ASB). We will:

  • Offer appropriate support and advice to victims and perpetrators of ASB and domestic abuse
  • Take relevant action specific to any reports of ASB or domestic abuse received
  • Provide you with a timely response to any reports of ASB or domestic abuse received

Types of Anti-Social Behaviour

There are many different types and levels of anti-social behaviour (ASB), these include:

  • criminal activities such as drug dealing
  • physical assault
  • threats of violence
  • stalking a person
  • criminal damage (including to property we own)
  • violent and threatening situations
  • racial harassment
  • alcohol and solvent abuse
  • domestic abuse
  • serious disagreements between neighbours
  • young people causing a nuisance
  • neighbour nuisance.

What support is available?

We provide support if you are at risk of losing your tenancy, or to perpetrators of ASB as a result of drug, alcohol and/or mental health issues.

We work in partnership with agencies such as the Police and Wearside Women in Need (WWIN) to support victims of domestic abuse, crime and ASB.

We deliver this in partnership with Sunderland City Council to help resolve ongoing neighbourhood disputes.

If you would like support or access to any of these services contact the Safety and Support Team.
