We’re supporting Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week 202304 July 2023
As part of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week, we’re raising awareness of the issue to help ensure all our customers live in homes and communities that are safe.
ASB Awareness Week runs from July 3-9.
What is ASB Awareness Week?Running from Monday 3 July to Sunday 9 July, ASB Awareness Week 2023 aims to encourage communities to take a stand against ASB and highlight the actions that can be taken by those experiencing it.
What are we doing to support the campaign?Throughout the week, colleagues from our Homes & Communities team will be highlighting the support that is available to those affected by ASB and hosting a drop-in session for local organisations.
On Wednesday 5 July, colleagues in our Staines office will be taking part in ‘The Big ASB Conversation’. Members of the Early Intervention Group and representatives from the local police force and RESOLVE, the UK’s leading ASB and community safety organisation, will be in attendance.
The national campaign is being organised by RESOLVE and a series of events will be taking place involving councils, police forces, housing associations, charities, community groups and sports clubs.
Recent YouGov research commissioned by RESOLVE found that almost one in seven people have had to consider moving home because of the impact ASB was having on them.
How colleagues tackled anti-social behaviour at one of our estates in OxfordNeighbourhood Officer Angela Dewey recently worked closely with residents and local authorities to address issues of anti-social behaviour at one of our estates in Oxford.
Residents were affected by issues with noise nuisance, violence and drug use.
Angela said: “I regularly visit the estate which is now a much safer and more peaceful place to live. When visiting one of the residents who had reported the ASB to us, I asked how things were now and she said, ‘I like living here, there is a sense of community now’.”
How to report ASB?If your neighbour or someone else is doing something that is making it difficult for you to enjoy your home, there are several things you can do to address the situation.
Whether you’re an A2Dominion customer or not, if you need to report ASB, the quickest way to do it is through your A2Dominion My Account. If you don't have an online account, you can register for one.
You can also call us on 0800 432 0077 during office hours, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm. To report a crime urgently, call the police on 999.
Before reporting anti-social behaviour, it's important to understand what you can and cannot report as ASB.
