Some highlights of our work tackling anti-social behaviour
Developing our approach
Over the last five years we have further developed our approach to tackling nuisance and anti-social behaviour, ensuring that it is dealt with effectively, including improved support for victims and witnesses. We have been working with tenant members on the Communities Panel to develop service standards. These will be introduced in the summer.
Heywood glued locks
A spate of super-glued locks in the Heywood area caused great distress to many residents including RBH tenants. Working in partnership with the police, the RBH enforcement team were instrumental in bringing the case to a successful conclusion and preventing further incidents.
Prison! Me! No Way!
We have continued our partnership with the No Way Trust, who run the groundbreaking "Prison! Me! No way!" programme. This is a national programme with a core aim of raising awareness among young people about the causes, consequences and penalties of crime. We know that this programme has made a real difference to the communities we serve.
RBH Enforcement Officer Graham Dures even received a volunteer award in recognition for his outstanding support for the project!
Your Most Memorable Moments
Getting involved in our celebrations
In April, May and June we'll be sharing with you what we're done to keep the 50 promises we made when we took over ownership of the homes formerly owned by the Council. We’ll post information online and via social media and invite you to send in your ‘Most Memorable Moments’ (your MMMs) of the past five years.
Your most memorable moment might be something that was life changing - like moving into your home or starting work for RBH. It might be something that had a big impact: new kitchen or bathroom or meeting a new neighbour or colleague. It may be something that was difficult: the floods last Christmas spring to mind or an emergency repair. It might be equally be something very simple.
We want to know what stands out in your memory. We want to hear your stories. We will add your MMM comments and photos to each promise to create an online album to share everyone’s experiences. We will showcase the album at our “All Together” Annual Members Meeting on 12 September.
As an added bonus, everyone who submits a memory will be entered into a draw to win £200 in shopping vouchers!
