Casey to head respect agenda

A Respect Task Force to deliver the government’s Respect
agenda was announced today by Home Secretary Charles Clarke.

Based in the Home Office, the department will be headed by the
former national director of the Antisocial Behaviour Unit Louise
Casey and will report to Clarke alongside Home Office minister
Hazel Blears.

“From bad behaviour in schools and poor parenting to binge
drinking and noisy neighbours, disrespect for others can take many
forms,” said Clarke.

“It is absolutely crucial therefore that the task force is
joined up across government, bringing together officials from all
relevant departments,” he added

The objectives will be to:-

• Work together on the antisocial behaviour and
neighbourhood renewal agendas

• Support parents and guardians to take responsibility for
their children’s actions

• Support the alcohol, policing and violent crime

An inter-ministerial steering group chaired by Hazel Blears will
include ministerial and official representation from across
