Safer Wolverhampton Partnership - Community Safety and Harm Reduction Strategy 2020-2023

Closed 31 Jan 2020

Opened 8 Nov 2019


The Safer Wolverhampton Partnership (SWP) is the statutory community safety partnership and local police and crime board in Wolverhampton. SWP not only develops and delivers strategic plans for the city; it works to implement section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act, which places a duty on all statutory partners to consider issues of community safety at the centre of their delivery.

The 2020-2023 strategy has been drafted following analysis of current data trends and intelligence, and gathering views from organisations across the partnerships and sectors through ongoing consultation. The Safer Wolverhampton Partnership is now seeking wider views of stakeholders and residents of Wolverhampton.

Why your views matter

The draft strategy outlines significant progress made during the period of the last strategy across the strands of reducing reoffending, violence prevention and reducing victimisation. These priorities have been updated to form the cornerstones of the new strategy. The priorities were determined by partners across the city including statutory agencies, third sector organisations and resident representatives. The priorities agreed for 2020-2023 are:

  • Reducing offending
  • Preventing violence
  • Harm reduction
  • Building community capacity

Consultation around this draft strategy will run for a 12 week period in line with Wolverhampton's Compact agreement, from 8 November 2019 to 31 January 2020.

This is a key opportunity to influence how services will be delivered over the next few years, so please take this opportunity to be part of shaping the city's future.

Closing date for the consultation is 31 January 2020.
