Can I name and shame all my tenants who fail to pay their rent, cause havoc on the estates and cause £1000's of damage to my employers property?

Yes, go ahead. You would be a stupid not to. You don't run any risk as I am sure your employers will protect you and on top of that they'll give you a promotion.  The more tenants you name and shame the higher your promotion.  You might end up Ceo is you name and shame all your tenants in one go right in the next post on this thread. Just think of the fat salary you will be getting and go ahead, mate!

Your Social Housing employer already has extensive powers and means available to discipline those tenants that behave in ways you have described. Perhaps they are not Draconian enough to ease the anger and frustration that you feel.

Your post is really a deflection from the topic of this thread, isn't it? A tenant raises the possibility of making serious criticisms about a housing association on a public forum. Your response is to deflect attention away from that issue and to try and focus it on the poor behaviour of a small minority of other tenants. It is a way of avoiding the topic that's been raised, with its focus on Housing Associations behaviour.

This is the kind of thing that failing Housing Associations and or workers do to avoid taking responsibility for problems that tenants raise with them.

    I lived with my mother for over 20 years in a 2 bed council flat. My mother sadly passed away 3 years ago. The council got in touch with me about 6 weeks ago and requested verious bills, death certificate, etc as proof that I lived there so that I would get succession in tenancy which I am entitled to. However, they have now said that I need to downsize. This is my home and the thought of having to move away from friends and family is making me ill. I have no one else in the area and am getting ill over this. ...

    I am over 65 and live in a small council flat. I suffer from spinal arthritis as well as other health problems. I have decided to swap my flat with a housing association tenant whose flat is slightly larger than mine I.e an extra small bedroom. I am looking ahead as I may eventually be confined to a wheel chair. I have been told that I would not have to pay the bedroom tax.  I live on my own and would be living on my own if the swap goes through. Does anyone know if I have to pay ...

    The legislation that you're looking at relates to statutory overcrowding, you're looking at Part X of the Housing Act 1985.  Mutual exhanges are in s.92, which is Part IV.

    One point worth mentioning - a tenant who owns property elsewhere will not be entitled to Housing Benefit.
