Safer and Stronger Communities Strategic Partnership

Strategic Assessment of Crime and Disorder 2018/19

The Strategic Assessment of Crime and Disorder 2018/19 aims to provide South Gloucestershire with a long term, high level evaluation of the main issues facing the various agencies working for the local area. The purpose is to drive the business of the partnership to support planning for the future.

The South Gloucestershire Safer and Stronger Communities Strategic Partnership is made up of organisations who work together and with communities to tackle crime and disorder, and improve community safety for local residents.

It fulfils the statutory function of the Community Safety Partnership and membership includes the police and police and crime commissioner, local authority, fire service and fire authority and clinical commissioning group as well as voluntary sector agencies.

The partnership has a legal duty to undertake an annual strategic assessment of local community safety, and to implement a partnership plan to coordinate work to address the priorities that this highlights.

The safer stronger partnership strategy guides the work of partners and helps them to:

  • consolidate existing strategies related to safer and stronger communities into a single document
  • link related themes and give clarity and focus to the partnership’s work
  • identify actions, with targets, for delivering some of the more general outcomes
  • learn from more recent changes to our working and living environment

There are six themes within the strategy: be safe; feel safe; promoting equality and improving cohesion; priority neighbourhoods; engaging communities in decision making; voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises.
