Anti-social behaviour

Keeping people safe.

Anti-social behaviour is any aggressive, intimidating or destructive activity that damages or destroys another person's quality of life.


The Respect campaign encourages us all to work together to create a society in which we can respect one another and live in peace together.

The Respect Action Plan details how the government will encourage respect in communities, including stamping out anti-social behaviour, by:

  • supporting or challenging anti-social households
  • tackling truancy and anti-social behaviour in schools
  • providing activities for younger people
  • strengthening local communities
  • stronger measures to tackle anti-social behaviour
