South Broxtowe Safer Communities Forum

Mission Statement: Safer Communities Forums will strengthen communities throughout Nottinghamshire by valuing partnership working between police, councillors, Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators and other, relevant Community representatives, to proactively reduce crime, and the fear of crime, in and around the neighbourhood they serve. Continuity of commitment from the members of the group should be encouraged, as well as looking at best practices from other groups and sharing information and ideas with the common goal of improving neighbourliness and community cohesion.

The collaboration of Beeston, Chilwell and Stapleford clusters Priority Setting Meetings (PSM) was proposed and discussed at Stapleford PSMs in 2016 and the first joint meeting took place on 17 January 2017 at The Meeting Place, Stapleford. The concept of restructuring the meetings to emphasise joined up thinking and working together, rather than the restrictive setting of priorities, was discussed and agreed.
