Take Action

Everybody has a right to feel safe where they live, and we all have a part to play. Join us on our mission to #MakeCommunitiesSafer

An organisation

1 - Ensure that the ASB Principles are truly embedded into your service

Developed by Resolve and partners from HM Government, the Civil Service, Police, Fire and other national stakeholders, the ASB Principles describe a consistent approach to understanding and addressing antisocial behaviour.

They are intended to act as a guide to support local decision making and ensure the best possible outcomes for victims of anti-social behaviour.


2 - Support our call for one single, national information sharing agreement

We know that ASB and other community safety issues often require a multi-agency approach, and information sharing is absolutely crucial to this.

We also know that a lot of community safety partners, particularly housing organisations, have difficulty getting information from other agencies - even when this information is needed to resolve ASB, reduce harm and prevent criminal activity.

Add your organisation’s name to our open letter calling for one single, national information sharing agreement to help practitioners and officers get the information they need, when they need it, to protect victims of ASB.

LEARN MORE

An officer/practitioner

1 - Be a part of the national conversation

As someone working in the sector, you are best placed to offer knowledge and insight into what works and what doesn’t. You know from experience what changes need to happen at a policy level and what challenges currently need to be addressed.

By responding to our consultations and participating in Ask The Network discussions, you are directly helping to shape national policy and best practice.


2 - Stay up to date with the latest best practice, any new legislation or guidance, and make training/CPD a priority

STAY UP TO DATE

We are working in a fast-paced sector, and with all of the new policy being introduced that will effect the way we work, it has never been more important to stay up to date with the latest changes and corresponding guidance.

Attending training courses and considering CPD opportunities (such as BTECs and the Apprenticeship) can help you to be even more confident and efficient with your work by learning new approaches, skills and knowledge.


3 - Support our call for one single, national information sharing agreement

We know that ASB and other community safety issues often require a multi-agency approach, and information sharing is absolutely crucial to this.

We also know that some community safety partners have difficulty getting the information they need to resolve anti-social behaviour, reduce harm and prevent criminal activity. In response to a recent survey of Resolve members, a staggering 97% of respondents said they struggle to get the information they need from other agencies at least some of the time. A worrying 60% said they experience difficulty most or all of the time.

Add your organisation’s name to our open letter calling for one single, national information sharing agreement to help practitioners and officers get the information they need, when they need it, to protect victims of ASB.

2 - Learn about how to recognise and report ASB

Our data shows that over half of victims and witnesses don't report anti-social behaviour. Some of the reasons cited for not reporting include "Didn't think it was serious enough", "Didn't know how/where to make a report", "Didn't think anything would be done if I did make a report", "Made a report before and was unsatisfied with the response".

Despite this, it is crucial that we all report ASB when we see it. We know that ASB can be a precursor to serious crime and your report could initiate an intervention, help that person to get support if they need it, and prevent escalation towards a serious harmful incident.


3 - See our latest research into ASB

In partnership with the National Police Chief’s Council, Resolve have commissioned YouGov to conduct detailed research into anti-social behaviour twice per year since 2021.
