Safe and Attractive Environment
Community safety
Activities include: targeting persistent offenders, taking appropriate enforcement action, and promoting diversionary activities in areas reporting a high number of incidents.
Knife Crime
Awareness Workshops
In response to recent increases in knife crime, Assure 24, in partnership with Greater Manchester Police, delivered a series of workshops to 10 primary schools across Wythenshawe.
Pupils were encouraged to take part in role plays, discussions and learn about the dangers of knife crime in a creative and educational way. They also learned about the dangers of carrying a knife, the impact of knife crime, how to make safe decisions and the impact this has on the wider community.

          Birch Tree Court and Edwards Court Neighbours Day
The Tenancy Management team held a Neighbour’s Day at Birch Tree and Edwards Court.
The Real Food and Financial Inclusion teams supported the event. There was a fun Martial Arts demonstration and an exhilarating Zumba class.
It was a great opportunity to give something back to the community and engage in discussion about our service offer to these blocks, including the Local Lettings Policy and our approach to dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour.
