Safer Barnsley Partnership is a multi-agency partnership working to make Barnsley a safer place for local people and communities by tackling crime, anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and re-offending.
Role of the Safer Barnsley Partnership
The Safer Barnsley Partnership’s key role is to:
- understand the community safety issues and produce a needs assessment
- use this evidence base and develop a plan to collectively address these community safety issues
- review the plan annually to ensure the priorities continue to reflect local needs
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 places statutory duties on agencies to come together to address crime and community safety. These agencies are known as responsible authorities. The Safer Barnsley Partnership has representation from a wide range of agencies, including both responsible authorities and other agencies who contribute to community safety in Barnsley.
These are as follows:
- Barnsley Council
- South Yorkshire Police
- South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue
- NHS Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group
- National Probation Service
- Community Rehabilitation Company
- Neighbourhood Watch
- Berneslai Homes
- Office of the Police Crime Commissioner
- Youth Offending Team
