The Safer Blaenau Gwent Community Safety Partnership
Who are we?
Safer Blaenau Gwent is the Community Safety Partnership that operates within the County Borough working to protect, support and empower people to feel safe and be safe in their homes and communities.
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and its related legislation identified a number of ‘responsible authorities’ that have a duty to work together to tackle community safety issues.
Local Authority - Chief Executive
Local Authority Elected Member Executive Member - Crime and Disorder and Safer Communities
Heddlu Gwent Police - Local Policing Unit Commander
Gwent Police Authority - Elected Representative
Aneurin Bevan Health Board - Health Representative
Wales Probation Trust - Chief Officer
South Wales Fire and Rescue Authority - Elected Representative
The key role of the Partnership is to listen to residents and understand the kinds of problems Blaenau Gwent is experiencing; decide which of these are the most important to deal with; and then decide what action to take collectively, adding value to the day-to-day work undertaken by individual agencies and organisations.
The following sections identify the priority areas that the Partnership will focus its resources on:
