Organisation Aims/Missions:

Isos housing - We are a large Housing Association (registered provider) covering the North East region , we have almost 13,000 properites of which approximatey 9,000 fall within the Northumbria policing command. We are an ambitious company with a strategic vison to have 20,000 properties by 2020. We have a proven track record in delivering high quality services in general needs and supported housing schemes. Our core vision is to everyday make somebody\\\\\\\'s life better.

Overview of the services offered:

New approach - Isos housing has made significant changes into how it assesses incidents of crime and asb. Traditionally housing associations have been very incident led , dealing with the type of crime or asb and not focusing on the impact this can have on victims . Isos recognises that the impact on a victim or household can be significant no matter what type of incident has occurred. The new Risk Assessment Matrix is used in all incidents of asb reported to Isos in order for us to be able to tailor our service to deal with 3 key areas: History, Vulnerability and Support. This matrix guides the investigating officer on what is needed to support a victim. All high risk cases are flagged up at partnership meetings through a supporting CSP (we attach a copy of the RAM for your information).

Partnership working - Isos covers 8 CSP areas. We place huge importance on working with partners to offer support and a way forward for both victims and perpetrators looking to engage to change their behaviour. We use these multi agency meetings to flag up our high risk victims and use the expertise of support groups to help work with those at risk.

An example of this is our education and prevention program in partnership with victim support. This innovative program will work in schools raising awareness of key topics such as hate crime. This program is an interactive session going through key issues but importantly also explaining the consequences of actions. This program is something we hope to roll out in many schools in our CSP areas and the excellent work victim support do, along with the impact housing can play, can be pushed to the forefront of other agencies. We hope to link into funding opportunities in order to sustain this program long term and across our large stock.

Case study - working with victims is a crucial part of dealing with crime and asb. The RAM has already played a huge part in supporting people\\\\\\\'s lives of which an example happened recently. We were advised by local police that an incident had happened at a property known to us due to a previous incident of dometic violence. This time the victim gave police a statement and the police then met us at court with the statement and we secured an ex-parte injunction to remove the offender from the whole estate. All of this happened within 90 minutes. This victim first approach meant support and safety for a tenant who had suffered in silence for sometime. The injunction was made 2 weeks later into an 18 month long order with exclusion zone and power of arrest.

Isos housing understands the need to constantly review and evaluate our work with victims of crime and asb. Isos are setting up a service improvement panel consisting of victims of asb to review and influence our polices and procedures when dealing with asb/crime. Isos is committed to listening to the needs and experience of victims who are ideally placed to make changes to service delivery and offer us key learning.

Isos housing places not only victims of crime and asb at the centre of an investigation, we also recognise that our strategic links with the CVS sector are vital in order to meet our objectives to support and signpost victims to the right agency at the right time.

All of our work is currently self funded. We hope to make long term partnerships with CVS members in order to help secure funding in the current difficult economic climate. We believe that the introduction of the PCC will hopefully enable Housing to play a prominent role in developing awareness, prevention, education and enforcement across the region, developing closer links with the police, local authorities and the CVS, working together to protect victims through a swift response.

To enable Isos to further embed a culture of involving and empowering communities Isos Hosuing has developed a Community Investment Strategy which is underpinned by a locally targeted action plan. The 6 main areas c
