ASB and its effect on you 

We will support you and your loved ones no matter what.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re an individual acting on your own or a whole family – we will listen to you and believe you and support you.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a group of friends or a residents association – we will listen to you and believe you and support you.

It doesn’t matter whether you are direct or indirect victims of ASB – we will listen to you and believe you and support you.

Anyone can experience antisocial behaviour and it can affect you in many ways. As we have helped thousands of victims of ASB, we have found that ASB affects people in many different ways including:

Remember, absolutely no one has any right whatsoever to make you feel any of the above for even a moment.

ASB can impact you and your loved ones in many negative ways, whether its emotional, behavioural, social, financial or your health.

Living with ASB actively causes you and your loved ones personal harm including avoidance behaviours, changed routines and an impact on your quality of life.
ASB has severe impacts on your mental health, causing you to live in fear indefinitely and increasing your stress and anxiety. This inevitably leads to panic attacks, depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 
ASB also has a wider impact, for example on your house price, the success of your local businesses, the prevalence of other crimes in your area and the overall happiness of your local community.
The Home Office recently conducted research into more than 1 million instances of ASB that had been reported and found that:
– 56% of ASB victims experienced annoyance.
– 42% experienced anger.
– 36% avoided revisiting the area.
– 25% of all those affected by ASB suffered severe and long-lasting mental health issues such as anxiety, fear, loss of confidence and difficulty sleeping.
– 24% went out less often.
– 20% changed their travelling plans permanently.
This is absolutely unacceptable.
Your ASB incident does not happen in isolation; indeed, it serves as a catalyst for other ASB incidents and this has a knock-on effect. For example, a loss of confidence results in avoidance behaviours which directly impacts the sense of community and cohesion in your area. 
Therefore, by reporting your ASB incident to us, you are not only helping yourself and your loved ones but you are also helping your community.
Remember, nothing will change if you don’t take action and we are here to help you – so contact us today. 
You may consider an ASB incident to be small or unimportant to start with. However, ASB can compound and become very serious or life-threatening as it develops over a longer timescale. 
We can help you whether you’ve contacted everyone you can think of for help or no-one at all.
