We’re pleased to support the first national Anti-social Behaviour Awareness Week (19th – 25th July) organised by Resolve.
What is Anti-social Behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour comes in lots of forms, from everyday incidents such as noise nuisance, to serious criminal acts.
We’ve made a short video to help residents understand what is, and what isn’t, anti-social behaviour, and how we deal with it. Watch here.
Minor disagreements between neighbours can often be solved simply by residents talking with each other. Often, there’s no need for us to get involved. For advice on resolving problems with your neighbour, if you feel it’s safe to do so, click here.
If you’re unsure what steps you need to take to deal with a particular problem, visit our ASB Reporting Toolkit here.
It provides advice on all forms of anti-social behaviour from incidents involving animals to violence and threats.
If you or someone you know is being abused or threatened with abuse, visit our Safeguarding Toolkit here.
Safeguarding is about protecting the right of an adult, young person or child to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
We want our neighbourhoods to be safe places for everyone. We won’t tolerate behaviour that prevents our residents feeling safe in their home and neighbourhood.
Sadly, hate crime is on the rise nationally. If you or someone you know is a victim of hate crime, watch our advice video here.
How to Report Anti-social Behaviour and Hate Crime
We don’t want residents to suffer in silence. If you can’t resolve a problem yourself – report it to sort it. Contact us here.
- We’ll be open and honest about what we can do
- We’ll tell you what you can do to help the situation
- We’ll tell you who else could help, such as the police or local council
We know anti-social behaviour is a very important issue to many residents. And we understand the harm it causes. That’s why we’re committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and making our communities safer.
We’re reviewing how we deliver our service. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to complete a survey. Over 1000 residents have shared their views and experiences of anti-social behaviour with us. Your feedback will help us to develop our service and you can read about our consultation here.
It’s not too late to get involved. If you have any views or experiences you would like to share, please e-mail us at: email@example.com.
