Resolve has considerable influence nationally, sitting on a wide variety of groups focusing on developing future policy direction and best practice.

Resolve’s own National Policy Advisory Group (NPAG) offers exclusive networking opportunities, direct briefings and acts as a ‘thinktank’ reviewing national priority issues. The thoughts and comments of NPAG are fed directly into the wider strategic groups that Resolve are involved in. Namely the Home Office Strategic ASB Board, the National Housing Domestic Abuse Policy and Practice Group, the Civil Justice Council Injunction Working Group, the Home Office Voluntary Sector Forum and N8 Policing Research Partnership Advisory Board.

Our unique position provides members with a voice; Resolve has played an integral role during the inception of the ASB Crime & Policing Act 2014 and the updated statutory guidance. Resolve has also played a pivotal role in the recognition and promotion of national best practice developed by our members that have demonstrated the importance of a victim-centred, harm-based approach when dealing with community safety and ASB.

Home Office Strategic ASB Board

This board was set up in 2018 following the disbandment of the previous ASB Advisory Board.
The New Board has sharpened it’s focus and terms of reference and is made up of 14 national organisations who all have a vested interest in ASB Policy and Practice.

There are currently four task and finish groups, concentrating on the following:-

  • Community Trigger
  • Data Collection/Best Practice
  • Secondary Fires
  • The Injunction

Resolve are leading on the injunction workstream which is focusing upon the pre application process with a specific interest on positive requirements and how we can ensure they are put to better use.

Civil Justice Council

HHJ Barry Cotter QC leads on this working group made up of 12 national organisations which are looking at improving the Injunction process post-application. As Resolve sits on both the CJC and the Home Office ASB Strategic Board we are able to ensure that all the work relating to the Injunction compliments each other and any concerns are raised in both forums.

National Housing, Domestic Abuse Policy and Practice Group

The group was established by the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) to bring those key agencies together who work across domestic abuse and housing. The group leads on, develops and implements national policy in relation to domestic abuse and the idea is that the agencies working together with a common voice is much stronger than each working alone. As part of this work, a further subgroup has been formed and chaired by Kelly Henderson (DAHA). The purpose of this subgroup is to focus on the perpetrators of domestic abuse and develop a toolkit for practitioners to use in relation to perpetrators of domestic abuse. This is to include the use of the tools and powers from the ASB Crime and Policing Act.

Home Office Voluntary Sector Forum

The Home Office Voluntary Sector Forum provides an opportunity for Resolve to obtain an update from the Home Office as to the various funding streams available for initiatives associated with crime and antisocial behaviour, which we can subsequently cascade to members.

It also enables Resolve to hear about projects and organisations working within the voluntary sector and therefore assists in identifying projects of note which are worthy of sharing with members at regional seminars, through Resolution or bulletins.

N8 Policing Research Partnership Advisory Board

Our Chief Executive, Rebecca Bryant OBE sits on the N8 Policing Research Policy Advisory Board. This Board is made up of several national and international senior managers working within the policy, practice and research arena with links to and expertise in policing. The Board acts as a sounding board, and to advise on measures that ensure that the maximum national and international impact is achieved from the N8 Policing Research Partnership (N8 PRP) HEFCE funded Catalyst Grant project.

  • 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.
