Event description

Description

Do you know 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.

The Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum are partnering with the Safer Somerset Partnership to host this free, themed workshop.

At the workshop you will:-

- Find out about the role of the Safer Somerset Partnership – including its plan for 2017 - 2021

- Understand about 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 also want to hear where the gaps / issues are and how this can be better resourced and supported.

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

This event is FREE and the invite will go beyond the usual Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum members. Please feel free to share within your networks.
