Running from Monday 3 July to Sunday 9 July, ASB Awareness Week 2023 aims to encourage communities to take a stand against ASB and help ensure all residents live in safe homes and neighborhoods.

What is A2Dominion doing to support the campaign? 

Throughout the week, staff from A2Dominion’s 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, staff took part in ‘The Big ASB Conversation’ in A2Dominion’s office in Staines. 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.

Rebecca Bryant OBE, Chief Executive of Resolve said: “ASB is not low-level. It can have a devastating and long-lasting impact on the lives of victims and communities and can be a precursor to more serious crime.

“It is important that the challenge of ASB continues to be given the priority it needs so that people everywhere feel safe in their homes and communities. We are delighted that A2Dominion is supporting this hugely important campaign. It is vital to develop partnership approaches across communities to deal with the growing challenges around ASB.”

How A2Dominion helped to tackle anti-social behaviour at an estate in Oxford

A2Dominion’s Neighbourhood Officer Angela Dewey recently worked closely with residents and local authorities to address issues of anti-social behaviour at an A2Dominion estate 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’.”

You can call A2Dominion 0800 432 0077 during office hours, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm. To report a crime urgently, call the police on 999.
