Question – I am a resident in Greater Manchester and I am suffering from anti social behaviour (ASB),  who I should contact?

Answer – First to the Police on 101. If your landlord is the Council or a Housing Association then they should be your first point of contact as well, they have a duty to tackle ASB and support you. If you have a private Landlord or you own your home then you should contact you local Council ASB Team.


Question – I run a business and I am having ASB problems with individuals outside my premises and don’t know who to contact?

Answer    - Speak to your local neighbourhood Police Officer first and ensure they know about the issue and ask what they can / will do to help. Then speak to your Council ASB Team. If this does not work then professional help & support may be needed from Mancunian Way or another commercial ASB specialist.

 

Question – What is considered anti social behaviour?

Answer – The law states that ASB is any action that creates Harassment, Alarm or Distress in a person who does not live in the same household. So in simple terms, if you feel harassed, alarmed or distressed by another person’s behaviour or actions, and this person doesn’t live in your home, then it is deemed as anti social behaviour.


Question – Do you offer support in helping agencies to find the necessary funding to use your services?

Answer – Yes. It may be difficult these days finding funding, but there is still money out there. We are happy to apply for funding jointly and work in partnership.

 

Question – I want to help the homeless, should I give money to a beggar?

Answer – No. It may sound harsh but you are not helping them, all you are doing is helping them buy more drugs or alcohol and keeping them on the streets. For more information please see our  Change 4 Good project.

 

Question – I run a business and it is being affected by the beggars and drinkers sat outside, can anything be done?

Then speak to your Council ASB Team. If this does not work then professional help & support may be needed from Mancunian Way or another commercial ASB specialist.
