Coming in Spring 2021: ASB Awareness Week!
The UK’s first official ASB Awareness Week is now being planned for Spring 2021.
Resolve has been closely monitoring the changing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and listened to the views of our members and partners.
We took the decision to postpone ASB Awareness Week (originally to be held from March 30 – April 5) but are now planning for a bigger and better launch in Spring.
We will reschedule all of our activity, and will be working with members in the coming months to make sure we get our message heard loud and clear!
We’ll be back in touch with new dates very soon.
We’ve been overwhelmed by your support for ASB Awareness Week with hundreds of councils, housing associations, charities and community groups all wanting to get involved! We’d like to thank all of our sponsors and partners for their support.
We’re very grateful for all your support and will keep you updated once new dates are confirmed. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Please let your communication teams know
Here’s a reminder of why we want to bring to light some of the great work being done by housing providers, councils, police forces, fire services and community groups to make communities safer.
Why take part?
Antisocial behaviour needs to be a national priority. We want this campaign to be a significant step in the fight against ASB in our communities.
- ASB incidents are on the rise - there were an estimated 1.4 million incidents of ASB recorded by police in 2018. It is vital that ASB is a higher national priority
- ASB is not a low-level crime – it is often the precursor to more serious crime such as knife crime and gang violence.
- Investing in early intervention is key to tackling ASB
- Working in partnership we can all make a difference – there is lots of great work being done by housing providers, councils, police forces, fire services and community groups to make communities safer. It is important that we celebrate these successes and showcase good
How to get involved?
There are loads of ways you can highlight the great work you are doing to keep communities safe. We’ll be producing a 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.
Help us get #ASBAwarenessWeek trending this Spring
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.
Tell your stories – 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. This could be your Chief Executive, those working on the front line, or even those who are affected by ASB. Post it on social media using the #ASBAwarenessWeek hashtag.
Make the media – Highlight the great projects and initiatives you do to keep people safe in the local and regional press.
Write to your MP – We want ASB to be higher on the national agenda. You can join us in calling for this by writing to your local MP using the template letter here. We’d also encourage you to invite your local MPs, Mayors and Council Leaders to visit any projects that you are running to keep communities safe during the week.
Other ways to take part:
Attend our Annual Conference. We’ll also be rescheduling our annual conference for Spring 2021. We’ll have another amazing line up of speakers and will be releasing more information soon.
Sponsor the Resolve Awards. These are helped at our Annual Conference and recognise the achievements of those working to make communities safer. Sponsorship opportunities are available for individual award categories and include places at the awards dinner.
