Antisocial behaviour


NHS Fylde and Wyre Clin­i­cal Com­mis­sion­ing Group (CCG) is one of the statu­tory part­ners involved in deal­ing with anti­so­cial behav­iour in this area. We work with the police and local author­i­ties to exam­ine issues and try to resolve them.

Lan­cashire res­i­dents who have been vic­tims of anti­so­cial behav­iour can request a review of how their case has been dealt with to decide whether any­thing else can be done to sort the prob­lem out.

Under the ‘Com­mu­nity Trig­ger’, which is a key pro­vi­sion of the Anti-Social Behav­iour, Crime and Polic­ing Act 2014, vic­tims of anti-social behav­iour or their rep­re­sen­ta­tives can request a review of how their com­plaints have been dealt with.

The pur­pose of the Com­mu­nity Trig­ger is to give vic­tims of anti-social behav­iour the abil­ity to demand action, start­ing with a review of their case, where the locally defined thresh­old is met.

The Trig­ger can be acti­vated by a vic­tim of anti-social behav­iour or another per­son act­ing on behalf of the vic­tim such as a carer or fam­ily mem­ber, MP or Coun­cil­lor. The vic­tim can be an indi­vid­ual, a busi­ness or a com­mu­nity group.

The rel­e­vant agen­cies that are held account­able by the Trig­ger are Coun­cils; Police; CCGs in Eng­land and local Health Boards in Wales; and reg­is­tered providers of social hous­ing who are co-opted into this group.

When a request to use the Com­mu­nity Trig­ger is received, agen­cies must decide whether the thresh­old has been met and com­mu­ni­cate this to the vic­tim. If the thresh­old is met, a case review will be under­taken by the part­ner agen­cies. Agen­cies will share infor­ma­tion related to the case, review what action has pre­vi­ously been taken and decide whether addi­tional actions are possible.
