Resident Safety Campaign

Aico has partnered with Inside Housing, the weekly magazine for the UK Social Housing sector, to launch the Resident Safety Campaign. Launched in 2019, the campaign aims to improve resident safety and promote best practice across the sector.

Carbon monoxide awareness

Addressing how best to work with residents for property access

Ensuring resident safety is supported in housing

What is the Resident Safety Campaign

The Resident Safety Campaign aims to promote best practice in resident safety and to enable registered social landlords to provide widespread safe places to live. It is intended to increase awareness of a good strategy and provide advice that addresses the need for safety in regarding Carbon Monoxide; issues surrounding gaining access to resident properties; and safety in supported living environments.

Part of this ongoing campaign involved a competition, inviting Housing Associations who have run safety campaigns to share how they successfully engaged residents on a variety of safety issues with measured success.

Resident Safety Campaign Winners

In collaboration with Inside Housing the competition continued for a second year, throughout 2020. Once again, we asked the Social Housing sector for examples of outstanding initiatives that engaged residents to work with landlords on areas of their safety. While a social landlord’s main priority is to build high-quality homes that are safe to live in, it’s important that residents have a forum to give their views and engage with their landlord about safety policies concerning their home. Our judges picked five social housing providers, who have demonstrated a range of solutions to improve resident safety.
