    We’ve 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. ASB awareness week logo

    Running from 19 to 25 July, ASB Awareness Week – Making Communities Safer aims to encourage communities to take a stand against anti-social behaviour (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).

    Sean Richards, Community Safety Manager said: “We know the effect ASB can have on families and communities, and we take all reports of ASB very seriously and support those experiencing it. We strive to create harmonious communities where people are respectful of those living around them, and we’re proud to be taking part of the first ASB awareness week to really help us to do that.”

    West Kent staff will be focusing on speaking to those experiencing anti-social behaviour throughout the week, attending fly-tipping hotspots, and launching a new website page where residents can find out more about what they can do to deal with anti-social behaviour, and when they need to contact us. 

    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 West Kent 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.”
