Community Safety

We take the wellbeing of our customers very seriously and move quickly to tackle reported instances of hate crimes, domestic abuse, harassment or antisocial behaviour (ASB).  We also operate a zero tolerance approach to racism in any form.

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

Community Safety is about feeling safe, whether at home, in the street or at work. It relates to quality of life and being able to pursue and obtain the fullest benefits from your domestic, social and economic lives without fear of hindrance from crime and disorder.

If you have experienced any form of antisocial behaviour, hate crime, domestic abuse or safeguarding issues in the vicinity of your home, we can help. All reports of antisocial behaviour will be taken seriously, fully investigated and the complainant involved in agreeing actions to be taken. All reports will be treated in the strictest confidence and the identity of the complainant will not be revealed without their consent.
