Taking a stand against anti-social behaviour
Published: 15 July 2022
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) can make people’s lives miserable. It can make people want to leave their homes and the area that they live in which is why it’s so important that we work closely with Merseyside Police and other local partners to make a stand against ASB.
From 18 -24 July, we are joining in ASB Awareness Week - a national campaign bringing together people and organisations from across the country, to take a stand against anti-social behaviour and make communities safer.
As part of this week, we will be sharing posts on our social media platforms which lets you know how we can support you if you are concerned about ASB, how you can report it as well as the work we are doing to help keep our communities safe.
We will also be out and about in our communities during the week, focussing on areas where we are receiving high reports of anti-social behaviour, giving you the opportunity to speak directly to our community safety team about any concerns you may have.
Wednesday 20 July – Garston Park (near Lumley Street), 2pm - 4pm
Following a recent increase in ASB reports from the Garston area, our community safety team will be joined by Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and local councillors to offer support and advice to anyone who wants to speak to us about their ASB concerns. SLH’s neighourbourhood team will also be on hand to answer and queries you may have about your home, tenancy or how to get involved with SLH and your community.
Members of the community safety team, Police and Fire Service will also be targeting anti-social behaviour hot-spots later in the afternoon, knocking on doors to find out your concerns through a short survey.
As part of the initiative, we will be joining our partners in the morning to give advice on neighbour disputes and noise nuisance; two of our highest reports of ASB.
Thursday 21 July – Speke. 10am – 4pm.
SLH’s community safety team will be out and about in Speke, targeting hot spot areas where we have received high reports of anti-social behaviour. We will be knocking on doors so that you can speak to us directly about any issues you have where you live; asking you to complete a short survey.
Cathy Biggs, SLH’s Director of Operations said:
“As a landlord, we have a responsibility as well as the powers to help tackle anti-social behaviour and that’s one of the reasons we take part in initiatives like ASB Awareness Week - it is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how we can work together, with local residents and key partners, to make communities safe for everyone.
"Last year, we dealt with 273 cases of anti-social behaviour with harassment and noise nuisance being your biggest concerns. We will be tackling these issues head on, as we actively speak to residents when we are out and about, listening to your concerns so that we can formulate a plan of action with our partners.”
ASB Awareness Week is organised by community safety specialists Resolve, and is supported by the Home Office, Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC).
