Effective support for anti-social behaviour victims

ASB Help is a registered charity in England and Wales set up to provide advice and support to victims of anti-social behaviour.

ASB Help aims to provide information and advice to interested parties and members of the public involved with and suffering from anti-social behaviour. We believe there is a clear need for coordinated information and advice that is readily accessible to those who need it.

Our website focuses on equipping victims of anti-social behaviour with the necessary tools to effectively report it.

The ASB Pledge

ASB Help launched the PLEDGE in late 2019, after a successful pilot with Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council. The PLEDGE seeks to encourage statutory agencies and registered providers of housing in England and Wales to promote the use of community trigger. It is also designed to:
  1. Encourage national consistency in the administration of the community trigger
  2. Assist practitioners in working to models of best practice
  3. Ensure agencies are meeting their legislative requirements
  4. Fulfil parliament’s intention to provide victims with a safety net to reduce the harm of anti-social behaviour.

Since the initial pilot, more than twenty authorities (including police and local authorities) have either successfully completed the PLEDGE or are currently in the process of taking it.

About Us

ASB Help is a registered charity in England and Wales set up to provide advice and support to victims of anti-social behaviour.

Dedicated to the memory of Fiona Pilkington who in 2007 killed herself and her 18 year old disabled daughter Francecca after agencies failed to investigate her complaints to them about harassment, ASB Help believes there is still a clear need for coordinated information and advice that is readily accessible to those who need it.

ASB Help aims to provide information and advice to interested parties and members of the public involved with and suffering from anti-social behaviour. Following such high-profile cases of vulnerable victims who did not receive any help from the authorities, we believe there is a clear need for coordinated information and advice that is readily accessible to those who need it.
