Victim Spotlight: Understanding the Consequences of ASB

Putting victims at the heart of our response to ASB is important. Equally important is understanding how quickly ASB can escalate. Learn how to improve your services to ensure early intervention and ASB is taken seriously. Treating ASB as ‘low level’ is a disservice to its victims. Learn what needs to be done to ensure that ASB is not treated as low level, but the serious threat to victims it can quickly become.
