Safer Communities Workshop

Safer Communities Workshop

Do you have ideas about how your organisation can help to make Somerset a safer place to live and work?

How can your organisation contribute to the community safety agenda for Somerset?

Almost all community safety work is done in partnership. No matter the subject area, it is rare that any one issue can be dealt with by a single agency.

There is a range of community safety work that involves agencies such as the voluntary and community sector, the police, and local authorities. Inequalities in health and deprivation have been proven as being a contributing factor for both becoming an offender and the likelihood of becoming a victim.

We’ve teamed up with the Safer Somerset Partnership to host this a free themed workshop, which will be an opportunity to:

  • Find out about the role of the Safer Somerset Partnership – including its plan for 2017 – 2021
  • Understand safeguarding referral pathways and find out what to do if you have concerns
  • Learn about the multi-agency One Teams across Somerset, where they operate, and how you can link in with them
  • Gain an understanding of ‘County Lines’ and its prevalence in our County

The Local Authorities and Police want to use this as an opportunity to find out about the good work that is happening across the county, and to hear where the gaps/issues are, and explore how this can be better resourced and supported.

In addition, you’ll get the chance to hear about successful community safety initiatives in the county that have been led by the VCSE sector.

It’s being held on Tuesday 2nd July, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at Long Sutton Golf Club. Booking is essential – register here.
