Active Tenant Network Launches New Anti-Social Behaviour Leaflet
The first Active Tenant Network took place in April and has continued from strength to strength. Active Tenants have been able to share ideas, concerns and a few laughs while also initiating positive change.
Since April the Network has been concentrating its energies on the key issue of Anti-Social Behaviour. The members decided to create a new, easy to understand leaflet to explain what ASB is, what it is not, how to report it and how Apex deals with ASB complaints.
The members looked at examples of ASB leaflets and after creating several drafts, the finished version was launched at the Active Tenant Network in October.
All Active Tenants now have copies of the leaflet for sharing with neighbours and the leaflet is also proving to be invaluable for Housing Officers.
At the October event Keelan McGaghran, Senior Housing Officer, delivered training on Apex’s ASB policy while Michael Lyttle, Financial Inclusion Officer, updated the group on upcoming changes to Welfare Reform.
The members also agreed their programme for next year which included taking part in a consultation exercise for Apex’s new Community Involvement Strategy and receiving training on allocation procedures. There will also be a recognition event to thank them for their hard work.
