Neighbours From Hell in Britain

Neighbours From Hell in Britain (sometimes known as NFHiB) was created on October 24th 2002, by two private individuals who experienced repeated forms of neighbour abuse themselves. NFHiB runs as a 'not for profit', voluntary group established to support and help any individual or group who is experiencing a problem relating to ‘Neighbours From Hell’ (NFH). .

NFHiB Forum Community

The Neighbours From Hell in Britain online forum community is presented on NFHiB and forms the basis of much information exchange and advice, largely via member-to-member based support.

A large and more general 'NFH: What's your story?' area for more complex neighbour from hell situations and issues also exists; and a specific area which covers the laws of Scotland which often differ regarding nuisance neighbour legislation.

The forum is led and moderated by a team of 'Topic Leaders' who are part of the 'NFHiB Support Team' and are the 'official face' of the community.

Interviews

NFHiB has conducted online interviews and obtained exclusive question and answer sessions with notable individuals. These have included Louise Casey of the Home Office 'Respect Task Force' and with Frank Field, MP, during 2004.

Other NFHiB Sites

NFHiB is the main site within a group of websites maintained within the NFHiB group and these can be viewed via the NFHiB.com page.

Currently live sites are the Complainers! Forum, AntiSocialBehaviour.org.uk, FreeBlog.org.uk and a brand new 'dotMobi' (.mobi) created mobile site at NFH.mobi (written especially for .mobi and to be fast and accessible on mobile devices).

NFH.mobi is believed to be the first neighbour support website written for and hosted from the relatively new .mobi domain extension.
