Homelessness and rough sleeping is an issue across the whole country. We're committed to working closely with local authorities to help as best we can.
As a resident, you share the responsibility with us in making sure your building is safe and secure.
Help keep your building safe:
- Be aware of people trying to access the building upon you leaving or entering the building. Always make sure the communal door is closed behind you.
- Make sure you know who you are letting into the building via your door entry system/intercom.
- If the block isn’t secure report this to us via Ask@onehousing.co.uk or complete our online form.
If a crime is taking place or you feel your safety might be compromised by confrontation, always remember to call the police on 101, so they can attend and address the situation.
If homeless persons are causing a crime i.e. smoking drugs/causing damage, then report to police. After you have reported what has happened to the Police, please also let us know so we can do whatever we can to help, by completing our online form. Please provide as much information as you can, such as the police incident report number, and the police officer's name so that we can make contact with them.
