Our popular Antisocial Behaviour Conference returns online this September. Attend Westminster Insight’s Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour Digital Conference to hear from senior stakeholders, policy makers and practitioners who are currently tackling ASB:

Wednesday 20th September 2023
09:00 – 13:00

During 2022, England & Wales’s police forces received 1,039,579* crime reports about anti-social behaviour. Anti-social behaviour cannot be left unchallenged. With the launch of the new Anti-Social Behaviour Action Plan, it is vital that agencies know how to tackle ASB and how to work together to prevent these crimes. Attend Westminster Insight’s Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour Digital Conference to hear theRt Hon Chris Philp, Minister for Crime, Policing and Fire, and responsible for ASB. He will discuss next steps for implementation and explore the implications of the ASB plan for multi-agency partners.

Learn how to manage and utilise available resources as you will hear from housing, local council, and policing and criminal justice sectors on their remit to tackle ASB. Use this conference to gain practical insights on information sharing, case management, and early intervention. Swift intervention can prevent behaviour escalating to a more serious level, and reduce the impact on victims. You will listen to the experiences of victims of ASB including Baroness Newlove, Former Victims Commissioner, and learn what your organisation can do to improve approaches to tackling ASB in the future. Gain practical insights from case studies on how to effectively include victims, communities and perpetrators in solutions and prevent ASB in the long-term. Don’t miss the opportunity to use our digital platform to ask questions to speakers, and network with colleagues.
