We have always used whatever measures we have available to tackle anti-social behaviour on our estates.
As our resident, you deserve the right to feel safe and supported, wherever you live.
Unfortunately, another serious side effect of Covid and the lockdowns has been a huge rise in anti-social behaviour, and it is expected to rise even higher as we begin to open up society.
Those figures are only the cases we hear of. More than half of the people experiencing anti-social behaviour don’t bother to report it.
That needs to change. Addressing anti-social behaviour is a national priority. It is not low-level crime, it can devastate the lives of its victims and communities.
That’s why we are part of Resolve a group of agencies and organisations, including other housing associations, the police and local councils, who are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and to get it seen as a national, high level priority.
2020 marks Resolve’s 25th year in business. It is their mission is to help organisations to effectively deal with community safety and anti-social behaviour issues through training, support, guidance and sharing best practice, so we can all learn from each other.
For national anti-social behaviour week, from 19 to 25 July, we are joining with Resolve and our partner organisations to share examples of what we do to keep our communities safe.
Anti-social behaviour Awareness Week is being backed by the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC).
