One Vision Housing has joined a national campaign that is bringing together people and organisations from across the country to take a stand against anti-social behaviour and make communities safer.
As an award-winning housing provider across Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire, One Vision Housing has a series of events planned throughout the week to mark the launch of the UK’s first official ASB Awareness Week.
Running from Monday July 19 – Sunday 25, ASB Awareness Week – Making Communities Safer aims to encourage communities to take a stand against ASB and highlight the options available to those facing it.
The week of action is bringing together people and organisations from across the country to take a stand and work together to make communities safer.
Organised by community safety specialists Resolve, ASB Awareness Week is being backed by the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC).
There will be a series of community safety projects carried out to help customers with safety and security, welfare and benefits advice, and neighbourhood clean-ups.
We will be visiting the following locations during the week and providing an additional advice line service on Tuesday for customers to report any ASB concerns online or over the phone.

Ian Mitchell, Managing Director for One Vision Housing said:
“At One Vision Housing we are committed to providing safe and secure neighbourhoods for our customers. During ASB Awareness Week we hope to showcase the work of our dedicated Community Safety Team, whilst also providing our customers with additional ASB support and advice throughout the week. By partnering with Resolve to tackle ASB in our neighbourhoods, we hope to improve the lives of our residents and make the areas in which they live better, too.”
Furthermore, we are delighted to announce that our Community Safety Officer William Merritt has been nominated for Resolve UK’s ‘Practitioner of the Year Award’. This award showcases employees that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to delivering change and inspiring others. This nomination demonstrates our ongoing commitment to creating safe and secure neighbourhoods.
Rebecca Bryant OBE, chief executive of Resolve, said:
“We need to change the way we think about ASB. It is not low-level crime. It devastates the lives of victims and communities and can be a precursor to more serious crime.
“As the nation begins to recover from the impact of the pandemic and our society and economy celebrates the start of return to normal life, it is important that the challenge of ASB continues to be given the priority it needs nationally and locally so that people feel safe in their homes and communities.
“We are delighted to have One Vision Housing involved in this hugely important and successful campaign.
“It is vital to develop partnership approaches across communities to deal with the growing challenges around ASB.
“Everyone has the right to feel safe in their home and community.”
