L&Q have joined Greenwich Council and others in a new social housing pledge to improve safety and security for the borough’s residents.

The ‘No Home for Harm’ campaign will see the council, L&Q and other social landlords work collaboratively to tackle ASB and other forms of crime.

Greenwich Council leader Danny Thorpe said that the goal of the pledge was to improve the way the different organisations work together “so we remain united in our common goal of making the borough a better place to live.”

L&Q CEO David Montague attended to launch to sign the pledge, alongside representatives from Optivo, Southern Housing Group, PA Housing, Charlton Triangle Homes, Peabody, Hexagon and Moat.

Greenwich Council and its partners will also continue to tackle ASB and crime connected to private households.

Cllr Thorpe said: “Social housing in Royal Greenwich provides stability and security for many people in our borough, and it is a fundamental part of their lives.

“I’m sure you will all agree that our role and responsibilities as social landlords go beyond, and is far more complex, than just providing affordable housing.

"Ensuring that residents also have safe and decent homes, in an equally safe and decent area where they can thrive and prosper in their communities, is of the upmost importance."
