Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Case Review

The ASB Case Review, previously known as the ‘Community Trigger’ gives victims who have persistently reported problems of anti-social behaviour the right to request a multi-agency review of their case, where they believe their report has not been properly addressed.


To be eligible, you need to: 

  • have experienced three incidents as an individual in the last six months 
  • be five individuals in the local community who have separately reported similar incidents, where you all feel dissatisfied with the action taken and all agree to raise the case review 


What happens during an ASB Case Review:

  • There will be a multi-agency case review which involves various agencies (e.g. Police, Local Authority, Housing Association, NHS). The ASB Case Review process is more of an attempt to ultimately fix the problem and devise an action plan to resolve the anti-social behaviour. 
  • Consideration must also be given for you, the victim, to attend the first part of the hearing (to provide a written statement, or an advocate on your behalf should you not wish to attend), to explain the harm that the ASB is causing you and/or your family and to express your wishes about what you would like to happen as a result of the hearing. 


To raise an ASB Case Review, you will need to contact your local authority.
