Community Safety Needs Assessment 2015/16

Main Findings



In November 2012 the Sub Regional Leaders Board commissioned Cheshire Probation Trust and Price Waterhouse Cooper (PWC) to develop radical proposals for change in respect to collaboration around community safety. This work was driven by a belief that service provision across Cheshire and Warrington (including Halton) was fragmented and too heavily weighted towards reactive services, as opposed to preventative actions.

More recently £420,000 from the Government's 'Transformation Challenge' fund was awarded to the Cheshire and Warrington sub-region to support the implementation of the proposals. The project was one of just 14 successful bids granted from a total of 145 submissions.

Partner organisations from across Cheshire, Halton and Warrington are now joining forces to tackle community safety issues with the emphasis on early intervention and prevention.

The Transforming Community Safety programme brings together the four local councils with Cheshire Police, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, probation services and health agencies. They will jointly set and manage community safety priorities, working together to ensure that the right service is commissioned in the right place, at the right time to help create a safer community for everyone. The programme is coordinated by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service with the different agencies taking the lead of five different work streams: 

  • Reducing Harm Through Alcohol
  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Reducing Reoffending
  • System Change, Performance and Governance
