In an effort to combat anti-social behaviour and keep people safe, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council has joined a national campaign.
The ASB Awareness Week 2023 runs from July 3 to 9 and aims to encourage communities to take action against anti-social behaviour (ASB).
Councils, police forces, housing associations, charities, community groups, and sports clubs across the UK take part in Resolve’s ASB and community safety week.
A number of events will be held throughout the week by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and its partners, including Big ASB Conversation meetings, Twilight Football sessions, bicycle maintenance events, and more.
Additionally, the council will use this week to highlight the Safe & Sound grant, which provides home security measures to eligible residents.
For more information on eligibility and how to apply, residents can visit the council’s Preventing Crime web page or call (01482) 393939.
A recent YouGov study conducted by Resolve found that almost 1 in 5 people were considering moving home due to anti-social behaviour; 1 in 10 had already done so. Over half of those surveyed who experienced ASB or witnessed it did not report it.
If you believe you are in immediate danger, please contact the police.
Rebecca Bryant OBE, Chief Executive of Resolve added: “ASB is not low-level. It can have a devastating and 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.
“We are delighted that East Riding of Yorkshire Council is supporting this hugely important campaign. It is vital to develop partnership approaches across communities to deal with the growing challenges around ASB.”
