Between 19-25 July 2021 we brought together hundreds of housing associations, councils, police forces, charities and other agencies – along with government departments – to take a stand and work together to make communities safer.
Thanks to our friends and partners, the event was a huge success.
Social media takeover
- The #ASBAwarenessWeek hashtag was used more than 9,000 times on Twitter during the week – and trended in the early part of the week.
- The hashtag had an economic value of £140,000, and estimated it reached more than 16,000,000 users.
- There were also thousands of Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn posts.
Making the media
- The Mail on Sunday ran a story on ASB Awareness Week, while key trade titles such as Inside Housing and the MJ also ran stories and comment pieces.
- Dozens of local and regional papers from all across the country carried stories about activities being done by partners.
Resolve’s Taking Back our Communities report was sent to every MP, along with other key stakeholders working in community safety.
Both Victoria Atkins MP, Minister for Safeguarding, and Eddie Hughes MP, Minister for Homelessness and Housing, supported the campaign and provided video messages for Resolve (these can be viewed here)
Thanks to our supporters and sponsors
Organised by Resolve, ASB Awareness Week was 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).
We’d also like to thank our sponsors, Stockport Homes, REACT and The Co-op.
ASB Awareness Week will be back in 2022, bigger and better.
The week has achieved a huge amount. Tackling ASB has risen up the public and political agenda, with councils, landlords and police forces committing to collaboration on levels not seen before.
The government’s Beating Crime Plan has prioritised early intervention in tackling ASB.
Resolve will continue to champion community safety.
