Briefing on victims of anti-social behaviour

Open document

This document outlines a proposed amendment to the Victims and Prisoners Bill, designed to broaden to access support for victims of persistent anti-social behaviour.

The Victims and Prisoners Bill misses an opportunity to extend the right to access support to victims of persistent anti-social behaviour in cases where the police choose not to take criminal action.

The Bill should be amended to include the following provision for victims of anti-social behaviour:

  • Clause 1 which lists those who fall within the remit of the Victims’ Code should be amended to include victims of anti-social behaviour who meet the threshold of an ASB Case Review.

For further information on any of the proposed amendments, please email
