Anti Social Behaviour / Hate Crimes

We take the wellbeing of our customers very seriously, and move quickly to tackle reported instances of hate crimes, harassment or anti-social behaviour.

If you are a victim of a hate crime or anti-social behaviour, don’t suffer in silence, contact us straightaway.

Anti-Social Behaviour

It covers any behaviour, by an individual or group, which makes another person or group feel harassed or threatened. It includes a variety of behaviours that can blight the quality of community life. ASB may include nuisance, annoyance, harassment or criminal activity. It is behaviour that lacks consideration for others and may cause damage to the community whether intentionally or through negligence.  

Anyone can be affected by ASB, not just people living in a property that we own or manage but also anyone living or working in these neighbourhoods.

Hate Crimes

Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s:

  • disability
  • race or ethnicity
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation
  • transgender identity

This can be committed against a person or property.

A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.
