An update from our Community Safety Specialist Manager, Byron, for ASB Awareness Week 2021

As part of Progress Housing Group's Customer First initiative, we now have dedicated Community Safety Officers in our newly-formed area teams who are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and nuisance in all our communities.

As covid-19 restrictions are lifted, our dedicated officers will be continuing to work on an agile basis within our communities to reassure and support customers and victims of all types of antisocial behaviour. Progress Housing Group has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of hate crime and will deal with such matters with the utmost urgency.

We have recently re-affirmed our commitment to working in close partnership with a range of external partners, most notably local policing teams and borough councils. We are also part of the UK-wide Resolve practitioners network, where housing providers and community safety partners share best practice and our staff have recently accessed a number of training and development courses and sessions .

As we move our service forwards, we have advertised a fantastic opportunity within the Community Safety Team for a Community Safety Team Administrator, via the government’s Kickstart scheme. This post will assist our officers in their duties and will be a great development opportunity for the successful candidate.
