our neighbourhoods

How our wardens help to reduce crime, fear of crime and improve community safety.

Our wardens sit within our Community Safety and Support team. They work alongside our neighbourhood managers and community safety officers to tackle key issues around antisocial behaviour, crime and subletting.

They liaise with police, local authorities and other agencies to ensure that our neighbourhoods continue to be safe and thriving communities.

What is antisocial behaviour?

What do wardens do?

Their work includes:

  • Carrying out high-visibility patrols on our estates, relying on data provided by other Peabody teams and external agencies such as the police.
  • Acting as professional witnesses to gather evidence and provide witness statements to support tenancy enforcement actions.
  • Talking to residents to build confidence, provide information and advice.
  • Giving evidence in court when incidents are witnessed.

They work flexible hours from Monday to Sunday to accommodate community needs. 

How will wardens impact our local neighbourhoods?

Our wardens will make a difference by:

Reducing environmental crime

  • Helping to improve the appearance of our estates and neighbourhoods by identifying and reporting graffiti, litter, abandoned vehicles, and fly-tipping to the relevant team (improved appearance of the environment has been proven to discourage further crime and antisocial behaviour.

Building thriving communities

  • Helping residents feel more at ease in their neighbourhoods.
  • Assisting vulnerable residents in the community.
  • Contributing to the organisation and smooth running of community engagement initiatives such as Neighbourhood Charter events, Community Services events, etc.
