Don’t suffer in silence – Report It
Everyone has the right to live in peace. Unfortunately some people are denied this right because of their race, colour, nationality or religion.
Team A5 support will work with the police, victim support agencies and local authorities to ensure that action is taken against people who commit racial harassment and that victims of racial harassment receive the help that they need.
However, we can only do this if the victims of racial harassment report it . We urge you to report any incident, even if you think there is nothing that anyone can do.
Please let your Tenancy Services officer know if you suffer any harassment in the vicinity of your accommodation. Team A5 adopts a victim centred approach to investigate incidents of harassment.
In serious cases we may be able to offer alternative accommodation or support you with making referrals elsewhere. If our clients are found to be responsible we maybe able to terminate their license to occupy.
Whilst Team A5 willl help where possible, it is also important that victims always report incidents to the local police.
