Wandle is supporting Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week 2023 (3-9 July). This is a national campaign to raise awareness and encourage communities to stand against ASB by highlighting the actions that can be taken by those experiencing it.
This year’s theme is ‘Know Your Rights’ and our ongoing aim is to ensure our customers and the surrounding communities understand help is available.
We provide homes in welcoming and safe areas in South London; however, we do unfortunately receive ASB reports that our Community Safety team work hard to resolve. Last year we received 352 reports of ASB. Most cases related to noise nuisance (30%), intimidation/harassment (20%) and criminal activity (7%).
Wandle is committed to preventing and resolving all forms of ASB by working in partnership with other agencies. We recognise if ASB is not properly addressed, it can significantly affect the quality of life for those affected, which is why we want to encourage anyone suffering with ASB issues, to have the courage to report it. You can read more about how to report ASB here > Reporting anti-social behaviour – Wandle Housing Association.
Frank Smith, our Community Safety Team Leader said: “We know anti-social behaviour can have a huge impact on people’s lives and it is important victims are supported when they raise a report. We are fully committed to supporting our customers and the communities in which we operate in by working closely with our partners to ensure all ASB cases are dealt as quickly and as effectively possible”.
If you need to report an ASB case, the most efficient and simplest way of reporting anti-social behaviour is through MyWandle. If you do not want to use MyWandle, you can call our Customer Service Team on 0300 2000 120.
