Get involved in ASB Awareness Week!

Unfortunately the UK’s first official ASB Awareness Week has been postponed until Autumn 2020

Resolve has been closely monitoring the changing situation with the Coronavirus pandemic and listened to the views of our members and partners. In the current climate, we have taken the decision to postpone ASB Awareness Week (originally to be held from March 30 – April 5).

asb awerenes postponedWe will reschedule all of our activity for the Autumn, and will be working with members to make sure our plans for ASB Awareness Week are now even bigger and better! We’ll be back in touch with new dates very soon.

We’ve been overwhelmed by your support for ASB Awareness Week! We’d like to thank all of our sponsors and partners for their support.

Please make sure you rearrange until later in the year any activities and social media that you had planned for the week so that we can all work together to raise awareness of this important challenge and the great work that you are all doing to make communities safer.

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


Now we need your help 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

  • I would recommend Resolve’s antisocial behaviour Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) as a fantastic way to have an independent refresh of your ASB service to ensure community safety partnerships are delivering a high standard of victim care.

  • The process was very straight forward and turnaround was very quick. The Resolve associate was knowledgeable and helpful. The feedback was returned in an easy format and informed our policy development going forwards.

  • The exercise was really worthwhile, and I would recommend it to any organisation wishing to ensure they are providing a high-quality approach (which satisfies regulatory standards) to their customers when managing cases of antisocial behaviour.
    A huge thank you goes to Resolve who worked step by step through this process with us.

  • Our old model was different in each region and business area, having a slightly different approach to investigation, recording and monitoring. By harmonising the approach and creating a Community Safety Hub bringing together ASB, domestic abuse, hate crime and community cohesion, Resolve is helping Riverside deliver excellence to its customers.
