Please see below message from Neighbourhood Watch Network:
Neighbourhood Watch knows that Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) can be the highest contributor to negative influence in our community. Often affecting an individual person or group, a whole community and the place we live. We know, because we have heard the distress from people that are going through this, here and now.
ASB Awareness Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of what it covers, provide methods of how and who to report it to, understand your right to your case being reviewed and more importantly, what support you can expect from various agencies and organisations.
We would like to encourage the conversations and we have arranged for 4 webinars to help you. We have speakers from Resolve, ASB Help, British Transport Police and from our Central Support Team, all talking about the many facets of antisocial behaviour in our communities and helping you to know the changes that were announced earlier this year and how that affects you, understanding your rights, knowing what to do when faced with ASB whilst on transport and what Neighbourhood Watch is doing to help communities deal with ASB in public spaces, through the Community Safety Charter.
ASB Awareness Week is spearheaded by Resolve and we are delighted to welcome Rebecca Bryant OBE, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Resolve is a Centre of Excellence solely focused upon community safety and antisocial behaviour (ASB) who strongly advocate that community safety issues and ASB can be tackled effectively, and everyone has a right to feel safe. ASB should be treated as a priority, it is not low level and is a precursor to serious crime.
