Managing Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is a significant challenge for Community Housing Providers in sustaining tenancies and maintaining good neighbour policies. We will explore good practice for managing anti-social behaviour, investigate resources available through the toolkit and, reflect on and explore how you manage difficult situations.

As a Community Housing professional, you will respond to tenants who are identified as hoarders and may live in squalor. It is a complex mental health condition that can affect the person, their family and neighbours.
