Announcing Baroness Newlove as patron of Resolve

We are extremely proud to announce Baroness Newlove as a new patron of Resolve. 

Baroness Newlove lost her husband 12 years ago after he stepped outside his own home to speak to some youths who were acting in an 'antisocial manner' and was brutally murdered.

On 26th June 2019, Baroness Newlove and our Chief Executive, Rebecca Bryant OBE, took to the fringe stage at the CIH Conference in Manchester to discuss ASB and knife crime.  This was then followed by an interview with Lucy Meacock which aired on Granada Reports.  This can be viewed by clicking the following link: -


The problem of antisocial behaviour is vast, people are feeling very unsafe in their own homes and the recent period of austerity has seen an increase in cuts to services. Consequently, there is now a need to work harder and become more inventive in how we intervene.  Antisocial behaviour can be a precursor to serious crime, Rebecca Bryant OBE stated that “nobody is born with a knife in their hand”, individuals do not become a serious hardened criminal overnight, this takes time, so we need to intervene early to challenge and change behaviour.  It is vital that it is tackled quickly and effectively to protect the vulnerable and ensure residents feel safe in their own home and local community

  • 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.
