I have just had a meeting with Sabina Jospeh who is the hate crime lead on the anti-social behaviour (ASB) team at Viridian Housing.
If you are a Viridian tenant/resident you can report anti-social behaviour/domestic violence and hate crime via their on-line reporting forms located here.
You can also download copies of Viridian’s ASB policy, Domestic Violence Policy and Hate Crime Policy from the Viridian website.
Here is their hate crime policy.
We are looking for ways we can work together to raise awareness of hate crime and encourage tenants/residents to report the hate crime they are experiencing.
We agreed to look at;
- How Viridian can prevent hate crime.
- How Viridian can encourage hate crime reporting.
- How Viridian can improve access to advice and support.
- How Viridian respond to hate crime incidents.
We also agreed that we need to work together to raise hate crime awareness and share best practice, which we will do by organising a meeting of Housing Associations/Housing Providers in March 2016.
