The Community Safety Partnerships Priorities:


Help people to feel safe within their homes & local community

We aim to do this by:

  • Reducing residents vulnerability to burglary & theft.
  • Increasing public knowledge of the management of fire safety risks within the home.
  • Promoting the PAL scheme amongst potential tenants, landlords, and other stakeholders.
  • Taking a partnership approach to tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the borough.
  • Reducing fly tipping and the impact it has on the local environment.

Safeguard vulnerable people

We aim to do this by:

  • Raising awareness of the impact of substance & alcohol misuse.

  • The promotion of Scam & Fraud awareness.
  • Sharing information & data across agencies to better support those with complex needs & dual diagnosis.
  • Protecting young people from exploitation & sexual harm.

Support and protect victims of domestic abuse and prevent future harm
