The latest research into ASB commissioned by RESOLVE.
Over the past year individuals and communities have been challenged and put under strain in new ways on an almost daily basis as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Sadly, pre-existing ills that impact negatively on those same individuals and communities have not abated. In fact many, including ASB, have increased. Our new research, commissioned in 2021, shows that the incidence of ASB has increased over the last three years at least, as have the concerns it engenders within and across communities. Police forces, councils and housing associations are reporting significant spikes in ASB cases – and these are not minor incidents. They are complex and serious cases causing real harm to many people.
