Assaults against housing staff survey 2017
If you work in social housing please spend 10 minutes filling out this important Inside Housing annual survey here. Violence at work is a key issue. A member of my branch executive has only recently returned to work after several weeks off following an attack.
Constant low level abuse and threats can also result in real health problems for staff.
In order to do something about this you firstly you need to know what is the range and scale of the problem.
