Action Plan to Crack Down on ASB

RESOLVE welcomes the Government's action plan to crack down on anti-social behaviour (ASB) and restore pride in communities (launched today, 27 March).

Rebecca Bryant OBE, RESOLVE’s Chief Executive, said:

“RESOLVE has long called for anti-social behaviour to be treated as a national priority, and the launch of the plan from the Home Office shows how far the issue has moved up the political agenda. 

“There are a number of significant announcements within the plan which will bring huge benefits to victims of ASB, support prevention and signal a welcomed change in approach across the country.  

“The replacement of the Community Trigger with the ASB Case Review should help more victims of ASB to understand their rights and reinforce a partnership approach already being successfully deployed by agencies in many areas. The more people are aware of their rights and how they can stand up to ASB, the more we will build stronger and resilient communities and increase trust in those charged with tackling the problem.  

“Our own research shows that the majority of ASB is committed within targeted areas in town centres, parks and on transport systems, so extra funding for ASB hotspots will allow for a more bespoke response based on the needs of local people. 

“We welcome the increased powers for landlords and housing associations allowing them to act swiftly in the best interest of their communities. We also know how devastating 'cuckooing' can be for tenants with vulnerabilities, so we will be pleased to work with policy makers  on a potential new criminal offence in this area.

"It is welcomed that our research and the views of our members have been effective in informing the action plan. We look forward to working with Government to implement the plan and will continue to work with local authorities and housing providers to make communities safer."

The plan is available here.

  • 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.
