The Government is committed to tackling and preventing anti-social behaviour (ASB). We know the serious impact that ASB has on both individuals and communities.

The Home Office chairs the Anti-Social Behaviour Strategic Board which brings together key partners from agencies and other Government departments, including to catalyse joint working and share best practice on ASB.

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) meets regularly with HM Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS), including on the recommendations in the Civil Justice Council’s report on ‘Anti-social Behaviour and the Civil Courts’. The MoJ is also working with the Civil Procedure Rules Committee (CPRC) to consider how to address recommendations in the report.

The Home Secretary meets regularly with her Cabinet colleagues to discuss government priorities, which include crime and anti-social behaviour.
