Community triggers

When to report a Community Trigger

A request to activate a Community Trigger can be made if, within the last six months:

  • you (as an individual) have reported to the Council, Police or a Registered Housing Provider (social landlord) three separate incidents of anti-social behaviour within your area, or
  • you have been a victim of a hate incident,


  • you believe that no effective action has been taken.

It should also be noted that for a Community Trigger request to be considered, you must have reported each incident within one calendar month of it having occurred.
