MSB Solicitors to mark UK’s first ASB Awareness Week

MSB have joined a national campaign that is bringing together people and organisations from across the country to take a stand against anti-social behaviour (ASB) and make communities safer.

MSB Solicitors, based in the North West, regularly act on behalf of registered providers of social housing in relation to anti-social behaviour cases.

To mark the launch of the UK’s first official ASB Awareness Week, our staff will be sharing their most memorable anti-social behaviour cases and attending the Resolve conference in London taking place on July 20th.

Running from July 18 to 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).

Andy Moore, Partner and Head of Anti-Social Behaviour at MSB Solicitors, said:

“We are proud to be getting involved in this hugely important campaign and work together to deal with the growing challenges around ASB.

MSB Solicitors was proud to attend Housing 2022 in Manchester to deliver a talk on the Knowledge Stage in partnership with Resolve and Cheshire Police.

The past few years has seen a sharp rise in issues with anti-social behaviour. With upcoming regulatory changes, there has never been a more important time for registered providers to engage with partners and communities to protect victims of anti-social behaviour.

Rebecca Bryant OBE, Chief Executive at 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 gradual 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.

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.”
