How GreenSquareAccord meets the Neighbourhood and Community Standard
- Our estate wardens clean communal areas and remove items considered to be a health and safety risk. Other items are ticketed and reported to the neighbourhood team to take action.
- Our neighbourhood team works with customers to identify neighbourhood priorities and physical improvements. We consult with all customers before implementing improvements.
Local area co-operation and managing antisocial behaviour
- We work in partnership with other agencies and registered providers to deliver community involvement projects. These include the Venture in Gloucestershire, Hill Rise in Wiltshire, and the Rose Hill project in Oxfordshire.
- We have demonstrable evidence of case management and resolution in preventing and tackling antisocial behaviour using the range of powers and tools available.
- We are active in communities and provide opportunities for our customers to engage positively; including, where possible, preventative measures relating to antisocial behaviour. For example:
The Rose Hill project in Oxford is Lottery-funded and GreenSquareAccord are the fundholders. We provide regular support and activities for children and young people on the estate – this became the focus of the second Lottery grant in 2017. Reducing antisocial behaviour in the area has been a factor of the clubs. Providing a safe space and new opportunities have been the driving force.
- We had an antisocial behaviour audit carried out by Resolve in November 2019. There are some recommendations from this that we are taking forward to improve the service we offer around antisocial behaviour. These recommendations were incorporated into the new antisocial behaviour policy and procedure in May 2020.
