New project: Young adults and antisocial behaviour enforcement

Thursday, 4 April 2019

Our latest project, funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, is now underway.

It will build on the findings from the project on young adults and antisocial behaviour measures we completed last year, which established the extent of the use of three antisocial behaviour (ASB) tools to sanction young adults in England and Wales.

We aim to further explore how antisocial behaviour measures are being used to sanction this group, particularly in areas where use of the powers is high. We will be using this evidence to help inform future practice in high use areas. 

Our work will involve a series of regional events as well as conversations with people in councils and police forces who are responsible for antisocial behaviour enforcement.
