Anti-social Behaviour Awareness Week

Published: 5/6/2023

At One Vision Housing we stand with victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and are joining a nationwide campaign next week (3rd to 7th July) to help raise awareness and keep our communities safe.

  • What is anti-social behaviour?

    ASB is problematic behaviour in a person that is likely to distress or harass people of a different household. This can have a negative impact on a person’s mental health and well-being if not dealt with properly.

    The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 defines ASB as:

    • Conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm, or distress to any person
    • Conduct capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to a person in relation to their occupation of residential premises
    • Conduct capable of causing housing-related nuisance or annoyance to any person
    • Some examples of this may include playing loud music, violent behaviour towards neighbours, or criminal damage like graffiti or vandalism.

    Please visit our frequently asked questions page for more support on ASB and how to report it.
