One week left to complete assaults survey
Frontline housing professionals have a week to complete Inside Housing’s survey on assaults against housing staff.
More than 100 individuals have so far answered the online questionnaire, which closes on Tuesday 8 May.
Inside Housing wants to find out what types of attacks housing professionals face while doing their jobs, and whether they report all incidents to their employer.
The details provided will feed in to a wider investigation into the physical and verbal violence experienced by those working in the housing sector.
We have conducted a Freedom of Information request asking local authorities across the UK how many assaults against housing staff have been reported to them since the beginning of 2009. The 100 largest housing associations have also been contacted and asked to provide the same figures.
All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence. The results of the survey will be published in Inside Housing on Friday 8 June.
