We work closely with other agencies such as the police, environmental health and residents’ groups plus town, borough and county councils.
We attend the police’s Safer Neighbourhood Team tasking meetings where anti-social behaviour is discussed and priorities are agreed each month. We are also involved with national organisations such as the Social Landlord's Crime and Nuisance Group where we can get information about the latest developments and share best practice on dealing with anti-social behaviour. Havebury has also signed up to the Government’s Respect agenda as part of our commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour.

A very important tool for us in gathering evidence is for people to use diary sheets to record details of incidents. This gives us a better picture of how people are being affected and are very good evidence if we have to take a case to court.
If you report a problem to us we will send you diary sheets as part of the pack we use to deal with anti-social behaviour. A copy can be downloaded by clicking here, but please let us know of any problems affecting you by contacting us as soon as possible.

How to report anti-social behaviour to us
If you are experiencing problems and need help or advice please contact your local office and ask to speak to the Neighbourhood Co-ordinator that deals with your area.
Alternatively, you may:
• Tell us about an issue online by clicking on 'Report Anti-Social Behaviour to Us' below. Remember fly tips, abandoned vehicles and graffiti are all examples of anti-social behaviour and they can be reported using the hotline or the online facility.
For serious incidents where a crime has been committed - for example if you have been assaulted - report this to the police straight away.
Help and support for victims of Anti-Social Behaviour
Being the victim or a witness of anti-social behaviour can have a huge impact on someone’s life. If you feel that you need to talk to someone about your experiences or seek some support to help you deal with your situation the Suffolk Victim Support may be able to help. You can contact them directly, or ask your Neighbourhood Co-ordinator to put you in touch. Victim Support also run the Suffolk Hate Crime Partnership. If you have been the victim of a hate related incident or crime they will be able to ensure that you have the best support available. If you live outside Suffolk follow the links to your area from the Victim Support Website to find local services in your county.
If you are unsure what you, Havebury, the police or other agencies may be able to do about the anti-social behaviour then you could go to ASB Help the national charity that helps victims of antisocial behaviour know their rights and who to report to.
