Multi-agency day sees housing team work with residents to tackle ASB

HOUSING Services team members have been helping residents learn more about dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour.

Members of Muir’s East Team held a Multi-Agency event at Canberra Court, near Huntingdon, following concerns raised by residents in the local area.

The East Team (pictured), invited external agencies to attend the event, including Police, HDC Community Protection and Enforcement Team, drug and alcohol service ‘Inclusion’, a local children’s centre and fellow area housing provider, Luminus.

“It was very positive in terms of making links with other agencies working in the community, and discussing how we can work together to resolve issues.

“A number of tenants came out to speak to us to report ASB issues and ask for advice on how to report them; and a number of families also signed up with the local children’s centre to get involved in some of their forthcoming events.”

The Muir team handed out Community Safety Surveys for tenants to complete so any issues can be highlighted.

One of Muir’s Money Advisors, Wayne Pearson, also took part on the day to offer support to anyone seeking alternative ways to manage their money.
