ASB All Party Parliamentary Group

New All Party Parliamentary Group launched to help housing providers tackle ASB.

RESOLVE were delighted to support the launch of the ASB All Party Parliamentary Group in Westminster on 8 November.  

The APPG will look at what more can be done to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour in our communities and, specifically, what housing providers can do and need to make things better for their tenants. To this end, one of the Groups’ first actions will be to launch an enquiry, which will also look at how we allocate housing in our communities, the way partners should work together when addressing this issue and how the courts could play a better role.

Chair of the APPG, Shaun Bailey MP said, 

“In far too many of our communities the lives of the law-abiding majority are negatively impacted by the mindless actions of a few. Across all parties and all parts of our country we all want to see our communities become places that people not only want to live but where businesses want to invest and opportunities are equally created.

“To do this we must address Anti-Social Behaviour head on and do more to support those organisations on the frontline of this work, including the police, local authorities, housing providers, community groups and charities.”

CEO of RESOLVE, Rebecca Bryant OBE said,

“This is another great opportunity for us to give our Members a voice and to collaborate with others to tackle ASB and make communities across the country safer. We’re really pleased to be involved with the APPG and look forward to working with the other parliamentarians, partner organisations and charities involved.

RESOLVE are helping to collect evidence for the APPG by offering a £100 voucher to housing providers who complete our survey. 

Background to the survey: Landlords have a responsibility and some powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

However, a 2021 report from the Civil Justice Council found that these powers often don’t go far enough or are not being used to their full potential. This will be the focus of our first inquiry, as we look into the barriers and issues faced by the housing sector in addressing ASB, and how landlords, homeowners, local authorities, the police, and others can work together to effectively do this. It will also consider what central government can do to support housing providers and others to address and reduce ASB.

  • 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.
