You’re invited to play a part in this year’s Anti-social Behaviour Awareness Week

At One Vision Housing we stand with victims of Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) and are joining a nationwide campaign to help raise awareness and keep our communities safe.

From the 18th to the 22nd of July, our Neighbourhood Service Officers and ASB Team are touring the Liverpool City Region and Cheshire alongside Merseyside Fire & Rescue and Merseyside Police with a series of events to get involved in.

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 devastating impact on a person’s mental health and well-being if not dealt with properly.

During 2021 to 22, we responded to 100% of ASB cases within 24 hours and received over 88% customer satisfaction for case handling and outcomes.

Day of Action events

We believe everyone has a right to feel safe in their own home and hope these events will raise awareness and provide local people with the tools to tackle ASB.

From 9.30am to 2pm, One Vision Housing and Merseyside Police will be available to offer support and advice.

From 10am to 11am there will be a neighbourhood walk and litter picking, with removal of fly-tipping and rubbish thanks to skips donated by Sovini Waste Solutions.

Merseyside Fire & Rescue will also be in attendance, offering free smoke detector and fire alarm tests between 11am and 1pm.

Date Location Addresses
Monday 18th Liverpool Hamstead Road
Tuesday 19th Sefton Wren House, Masefield Road and Bianca Street
Wednesday 20th Wirral Thornburn Lodge
Wednesday 20th Sefton Musker Drive
Thursday 21st St Helens Sutton Brooke Close and Sunners Green
Friday 22nd Cheshire Ledsham Gardens

Recent YouGov research commissioned by Resolve found that more than half of people (56%) believe that ‘more needs to be done’ to tackle ASB in their community. This research also found a notable rise in ASB cases throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, negatively impacting mental health whilst we were all confined to our homes.

Ian Mitchell, Managing Director of Housing commented:

“At One Vision Housing we are committed to ensuring our customers enjoy their homes and our dedicated team work hard to make our communities a better place, without anti-social behaviour.

Our [Day of Action] events aim to unite communities, encouraging them to take a stand against ASB and highlight the actions that can be taken by those experiencing it.”

Rebecca Bryant OBE, Chief Executive of Resolve added:

“ASB is not low-level crime. It can have a 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. 

It is vital to develop partnership approaches across communities to deal with the growing challenges around ASB. We are delighted that One Vision Housing is supporting this hugely important campaign.”

One Vision Housing are urging customers currently affected by anti-social behaviour, to contact them by calling 0300 365 1111 or emailing enquiries@ovh.org.uk.
