At the sharp end – working in partnership to tackle violent crime and ASB


At the sharp end

Against a backdrop of rising violent crime, the Regulator's Neighbourhood and Community Standard means housing providers need to show they are working to tackle anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhoods.

The government has introduced a raft of different measures to try to stem the tide of violent crime over the past year, including a consultation on a new legal duty to underpin a ‘public health’ approach to tackling serious violence.

Housing providers are being asked to bridge the gap created by cuts to local authorities and the police and work in partnership with them to tackle anti-social behaviour and violent gang crime in the communities they operate in.

This new event will hear from speakers on some best practice partnership initiatives taking place around the country focused on reducing anti-social behaviour.

Speakers include:

  • Lydia Dlaboha, Deputy Chief Executive, HQN (Chair)
  • Matt Jones, Managing Director of City West Housing Trust and Villages Housing Association, ForViva
  • Mary Nabb, Responsible for anti-social behaviour portfolio, Greater Manchester Police
  • Cathy Bennett, Neighbourhood & Community Safe Manager, South Liverpool Homes and Paul Holden, Merseyside Police
  • Claire Hogan-Clark, Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer, Capsticks Solicitors LLP
  • John Downes, North East Area Director & Head of Youth and Sport, Streetgames.

This event is also being held in London
