Victims’ Commissioner launches new anti-social behaviour survey

Baroness Newlove invites victims to participate in a fresh survey exploring their experiences of anti-social behaviour.

The Victims’ Commissioner, Baroness Newlove, has launched a new survey exploring the experiences of victims of anti-social behaviour.

The Victims’ Commissioner is keen to hear from victims of anti-social behaviour about their experiences of reporting and navigating the criminal justice system. The survey is open to anyone who has been a victim of anti-social behaviour in England and Wales at any time. All responses will be anonymised.

The information shared in the survey will feed into an upcoming report from the Victims’ Commissioner. The report will inform the Victims’ Commissioner’s ongoing policy work, aiming to give greater recognition to issues raised by victims of anti-social behaviour.

It comes as the Victims’ Commissioner pushes for better support for victims of persistent anti-social behaviour in the Victims and Prisoners Bill, currently progressing through Parliament.

Launching the survey, the Victims’ Commissioner, Baroness Newlove, said: “As I know only too well, experiencing persistent anti-social behaviour can be like a living nightmare. The cumulative impact of the behaviour can devastate victims’ lives, affecting their sleep, work, relationships, health, and feelings of safety in their own home.

“As Victims’ Commissioner, one of my priorities is ensuring victims of anti-social behaviour feel heard, respected and supported when they come forward. With this in mind, it is crucial to hear directly from victims, so that their experiences can inform the legislation and policy changes I put forward and they address the challenges these victims face.”

Additional information about the survey is available online, including how to request the survey in additional formats.

The survey closes on Wednesday 3 April.
