"I was shocked that I wasn't disbelieved. The Neighbourhood Manager came to see me the next day and sat down with me. Selwood set me up in a hotel for a week to get away from the situation. They helped me move and get an injunction put in place. There was feeling of care and real concern and they put me on to victim support."
"Selwood didn't disbelieve us and were very considerate of how we were feeling. They acted quickly and kept us informed."
"Louise was very professional and kept me informed. I always get a wonderful service whenever I have reason to call Selwood. Everyone is lovely."
Our scrutiny team looked at antisocial behaviour for one of their independent reviews.
We take all complaints seriously and your neighbourhood manager will begin a thorough investigation. Your neighbourhood manager will contact you within two working days and will work with you and other organisations to tackle the issue.
If the incident is of a serious, threatening nature that could lead to violence or the use of a weapon, or is a hate crime, we will arrange to see you within 24 hours. Remember to also contact the Police as well.
Your neighbourhood manager will carry out interviews and gather evidence from you, your neighbours, any witnesses, as well as other
relevant agencies, such as the police and environmental health.
We may ask you as part of this process to complete diary sheets and to download our noise app to aid the investigation.
We will agree on an action plan with you about what we intend to do and
anything that we need you to do. We have developed a range of responses that are both effective and fair.
