A team of 15 volunteers have been recruited to help victims of antisocial behaviour.
The new free and confidential service is provided by Victim Support and funded by the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership.
Cllr Lyn Ackerman, Caerphilly County Borough Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “Although here in the Caerphilly county borough we have a very effective ‘Four Strikes’ process in place for dealing with antisocial behaviour, it does remain as one of the primary concerns for members of the community, and time and again is identified as a priority at Police and Community Together meetings.
“By working with Victim Support, we are providing a dual approach to tackling antisocial behaviour.
“We will continue to pro-actively tackle antisocial behaviour as we have in the past, but now we are also able to provide an additional support service to our local residents who may have experienced antisocial behaviour and need some advice and guidance on how to move forward.
“I am full of praise for initiatives such as this and I sincerely thank volunteers such as those working with Victim Support to provide this service, for their valuable contribution to the community.”
