Stockport Homes has been helping people across the borough deal with cases of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) for the past 18 years. During this time the service has continually adapted to the regions changing demands, all of which ensure requirements are met and customers and communities are kept safe.

Alongside partnership work with Stockport Council and Greater Manchester Police and others, 17 colleagues work collectively within the ASB service to tackle crime across Stockport. Over the years, the service has evolved significantly and is now not just tackling incidents of ASB, which is often associated with youth or loud, but also tackling more sophisticated Anti-Social Behaviour including cuckooing, exploitation and hate crime.

The service plays a critical role in keeping neighbourhoods safe and delivers a CCTV service as well as a commercial offer to other organisations, within Stockport and Greater Manchester.
From June 2023 the ASB Service is going to be renamed the “Safer Neighbourhoods Team”. These services will be diversified to ensure tenants feel they are safe within their homes and can rely on Stockport Homes for their safety.

We are proud to be delivering such an important service within the Borough, and instilling confidence in customers and partners in the role we play in ensuring safety for everyone, whilst supporting the ‘One Safer Stockport Partnership.

Head of Safer Neighbourhoods
