Safer Wolverhampton Partnership Strategy 2023-2026

Closed 31 Dec 2023

Opened 15 Aug 2023


The Safer Wolverhampton Partnership is the statutory Community Safety Partnership and Local Police and Crime Board in Wolverhampton. Safer Wolverhampton Partnership 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 center of their delivery.

The current Safer Wolverhampton and Harm Reduction Strategy will come to an end in 2023 and therefore work is underway to refresh the strategic priorities of the partnership in order to develop the Safer Wolverhampton Strategy for the next strategic period.

The proposed priorities have been drafted following a workshop with a number of partners including statutory agencies, third sector organisations and resident representatives. The priorities are informed by current data trends and intelligence and the views of partners, stakeholders and communities.

The Safer Wolverhampton Partnership is now seeking wider views of stakeholders and residents of Wolverhampton on the proposed priorities:

  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Alcohol and drug related crime
  • Public place violence
  • Safety of women and girls
  • Neighbourhood crime

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.

If there is support for the priorities and proposed strategic objectives outlined, these will form the basis of the strategy development which will be presented to Safer Wolverhampton Partnership Board for approval in October 2023.

Further details about the proposed priorities, strategic objectives and early areas of focus can be found here.

Please note: alongside the Safer Wolverhampton Partnership strategy priorities the partnership will continue to deliver against statutory priorities, these include overseeing the City response to the Domestic Abuse Act and Serious Violence Duty. As part of these duties separate strategies are under development for both domestic abuse and serious violence. These areas do therefore not feature as priorities within this strategy to avoid duplication.
