HUNTER, C., HODGE, N., NIXON, J. and PARR, S. (2007). Anti social behaviour and disability: the response of social landlords. People, place and policy online, 1 (3), 37-47.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reports some of the findings of a review conducted by the authors for the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) on ‘Disabled people’s experiences of anti-social behaviour and harassment in social housing.’ The paper focuses on two elements of the review: the impact of disability on the decision to take legal action and how policies and procedures to tackle anti-social behaviour deal with disability issues. It also briefly considers how social landlords monitor disability. It illustrates how many social landlords may be failing to fulfil their disability equality duties imposed by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 when dealing with anti-social behaviour directed at or committed by disabled people.
