Report anti-social behaviour

We are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB). We take all reports seriously and work closely with partner agencies, such as the police and other local housing associations to tackle crime and ASB. Before reporting you may want to talk to the individual concerned as they may not be aware that they are causing a problem.

How to report ASB - During office hours

You should contact your housing provider Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm to avoid delays in investigating your complaint.
If your report is about an Islington Council Property, you should email Home and Communities or by phone 0207 527 5300. For more information please visit Homes and Communities webpages.

For all other issues during the day, please contact the ASB Reporting Line. Reporting online is the quickest and most convenient way to report your concerns to us. Alternatively you can also call us on 0207 527 7272.

How to report ASB - at all other times

The Out of Hours Response Service is available Sunday to Thursday nights from 5pm to midnight, and Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm to 2am.

If noise or ASB is taking place during these times, and it can be witnessed by officers without the need for them to visit you in your home, please contact the ASB Reporting Line. Reporting noise or other types of ASB online is the quickest and most convenient way to report your concerns, alternatively you can also call us on 0207 527 7272 (but please note you may experience longer call waiting times during busy periods).

It is best if you provide a contact phone number that officers can reach you on as this may help them to investigate, they can also update you about what they find when they visit. It may also be necessary to call you for further details if there are any safeguarding concerns. Please note that if you are reporting a noise problem officers will not visit if they are unable to speak to you first.

Officers will attend to witness the incident, try to identify the people responsible and do what they can to resolve it there and then. Details of your report and the officers findings will be shared with the relevant team or agency that are responsible for managing your case the next working day. If your report is about an Islington Council or Housing Association managed property, your report will be passed to them so they can contact you directly.

Any reports made outside of the service operating times will be passed on to the department or organisation with responsibility for managing your case the next working day. If your report is about an Islington Council or Housing Association managed property, your report will be passed to them so they can contact you directly.

When to contact the Police instead

All criminal behaviour should be reported to the police including drug dealing, hate crime, threats of violence, harassment and intimidation and noise from possible domestic abuse. In an emergency or if someone is at imminent risk call 999. You can also report incidents online, on the non-emergency 101 number or contact Islington Police Station directly by calling 020 7704 1212.

Please note that concerns about people not complying with the restrictions in place with regards to Covid19 should also be reported to the police.
