Safer Gwent

The Safer Gwent group has been established in order to work with key community safety partners and provide strategic direction and a structured approach to Community Safety across the five local authority areas of Gwent.

Safer Gwent is made up of representatives from the local authorities, the local health board, registered social landlords, voluntary sector, youth offending services and the probation and rehabilitation services.

The group aims to develop a collective community engagement approach to enhance partnership working with a view to achieving better outcomes in tackling anti-social behaviour, preventing re-offending and supporting victims.

Safer Gwent will meet quarterly and enable information sharing to facilitate enhanced partnership working; influence existing funding opportunities to support the Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan priorities; map existing community safety services to identify duplication and gaps in service provision; and provide information to support commissioning of community safety services.
