So I plan to team up with 'Neighbourhood Champions' - strong role-models who are working closely with the young and most disaffected in our neighbourhoods - to support the work they are doing in addressing the deep, underlying causes of their disaffection and finding ways of diverting it away from ASB.
This is of course a long-term solution, which cannot be imposed from the top down. We must work with representatives who already have the trust of their local communities and help them slowly turn things around.
In the words of the Rowntree Report:
We must "recognise the need to be not only tough on ASB but tough on the causes of ASB."
