Tackling crime & Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)
We believe that residents have the right to live peacefully in their homes, without the fear of anti-social behaviour. We recognise that tackling anti-social behaviour is a high priority for our residents. We are committed to to taking action against those who engage in anti-social behaviour.
To take action in an ASB case we must gather evidence. The best type of evidence is eyewitness reports from the person experiencing or witnessing anti-social behaviour. To gather this evidence we ask residents to fill in a diaryrecord of all incidents.
What is anti-social behaviour?
We believe anti-social behaviour is any behaviour that unreasonably interferes with other peoples' rights to the use and enjoyment of their home and community.
- noise nuisance
- verbal abuse
- intimidating gatherings of young people in public places
- damage to property (including graffiti and vandalism)
- harassment (including racist and homophobic incidents
- alcohol and solvent abuse
- nuisance from vehicles (including parking and abandoned cars)
- rubbish dumping and misuse of communal areas
How do I report Anti-Social Behaviour?
We have provided a number of ways to report ASB to make it as easy as possible. You can contact your Housing Centre in person, by telephone, fax or letter. Your Housing Officer will take details of the problem and will be responsible for undertaking all further enquiries. You can also report ASB by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- If it is not an emergency, contact the Police on 101.
- Contacting your local Police Station. If you witness a criminal act or if you are in danger you should ring 999. We will work with the Police to bring criminals to justice through the courts.
EastendHomes will soon be introducing a range of new online services to make it easier for you to interact with us, including the ability to check your rent balance, raise a request for a repair, and inform us of anti-social behaviour. This will complement existing services such as online payments of rent or service charges, and emailing your local office.
