Get to know the people in your neighbourhood. It is a good idea to join a Neighbourhood Support Group. To find out about joining or starting a group in your area, call Neighbourhood Support New Zealand on 0800 463 444.
Keep doors and windows locked and secure when not in use.
If someone at your door says they work for us, ask to see their identification. If they can’t provide any call your Tenancy Manager immediately.
If you are going away:
- Make the house look like someone’s home by leaving a radio or a light on
- Ask a neighbour, relative or friend to clear your mail or ask New Zealand Post to hold it for you
- See if someone you trust can mow the lawn for your and put your rubbish out
- If you are going to be away longer than 31 days you must let us know
