ASB Awareness Week, Communities Urged To Take A Stand - Latest update here
The UK’s first-ever ASB Awareness Week is now confirmed for 19-25 July 2021!
ASB is on the rise. Resolve members and agencies across the UK have reported a huge rise in ASB cases during the various national lockdowns. The situation is expected to get worse as society starts to open up.
Addressing this challenge is a national priority. ASB is not low-level crime, it devastates the lives of victims and communities. People deserve to feel safe where they live.
How can I get involved?
We want housing providers, councils, police forces, fire services and community groups from across the country to showcase the projects and partnerships they are running to keep communities safe.
There are loads of ways you can highlight the great work you are doing to keep communities safe. Download our Media Pack where you’ll find all the resources you’ll need including logos, materials for social media, posters, t-shirts and other campaign materials.
We’ve got loads of activities planned throughout the week:
Monday, July 19: Join our ASB Awareness Week Launch event between 10 am – 11.30 am where you’ll hear from The Victims Commissioner for England and Wales and key figures from national and local government and the police to discuss how to deal with the rising challenge of ASB.
Tuesday, July 20: Partnership Day is a chance to shout about the fantastic partnership work the goes on to keep communities safe. We want you to share examples of how agencies are working together to tackle ASB. You may want to write a press release about the great projects you are doing… if so you can find a press release template here.
Wednesday, July 21: Sign up for the Resolve 25 Conference with an incredible lineup of speakers to celebrate 25 years of Resolve. One not to be missed!
Thursday, July 22: Help people take a stand with a day dedicated to the victims of ASB. Our own research shows that more than half of people who experience ASB don’t bother to report it. We’re working with government on new guidance for social housing tenants on when and how to report ASB, which we plan to share during ASB Awareness Week. Please feel free to share your own guidance on reporting ASB to your communities during the week.
Friday, July 23: Practitioner Day will celebrate the brilliant people who work on the frontline in the fight against ASB. We want you to encourage people across your organisation to record a short video explaining why tackling ASB is so important to them and the communities they live and work in. Post it on social media using the #ASBAwarenessWeek hashtag. You can even download a selfie frame, t-shirts and posters for your videos here.
We’ll also be hosting the RESOLVE Antisocial Behaviour Awards with live voting on the night!
Of course, we also want you to…
Spread the word on social media: Use the graphics and template social media posts included in the Media Pack to raise awareness and showcase your work. There are also social media banners to download. Help us get #ASBAwarenessWeek trending between 19 – 25 July!
