Figures released last year showed that incidences of antisocial behaviour (ASB) rose by 5% between 2017 and 2018 with more than 1,000 incidents every day in Scotland and approximately 154 per day in Glasgow alone.  

This Bitesize Briefing looks at ASB from various different perspectives and promises to deliver some interesting insights.  Speakers will discuss some complex areas of ASB, some of the more nuanced problems housing staff may encounter and the range of assistance and remedies that are available.

Welcome & opening remarks
Alan Ferguson, Director, SHARE


A legal update on antisocial behaviour
This session will look at the legal remedies that are available to organisations, the effectiveness of antisocial behaviour orders, the likelihood of successfully seeking eviction and an overview of the most recent case law on the topic.
Lauren McLeod, Solicitor, BTO Solicitors LLP



Anti-social behaviour in a mixed tenure setting
Dealing with ASB between two tenants can be challenging enough for a landlord.  The issue becomes even more complicated when one party to the ASB is not a tenant of the association/co-operative.  This may limit what you can do to manage the disruptive behaviours and bring complaints to a satisfactory outcome.  
Stephen Lalley, Housing Officer, Partick Housing Association


Tea & Coffee



Anti-social behaviour and what your local authority can do to help
The successful management of ASB requires strong partnership working with various agencies. Community Safety Glasgow can help with the challenges that stem from managing ASB; from Out of Hours Noise Teams to hosting mediation between parties in conflict. The support services that are provided will prove valuable to any organisation encountering difficulties.
Fraser Gormal, Service Manager, Community Safety Glasgow




Anti-social behaviour and mental health
Anti-social behaviour issues can often be made more complicated when one of the parties to the complaint is dealing with a mental health problem.  The issues presented may be from the complainant or the perpetrator and may not even be diagnosed.  This session looks at the most common ways that mental health problems manifest in the context of ASB, how to deal with this sensitively and how to deal with as yet undiagnosed mental health issues.
Anne Marie Newman, Mental Wealth Training
