Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership

Who are we?

The North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership (NLSNP) is a partnership between the emergency services, councils and public, private and voluntary sector agencies working together to reduce crime, disorder and substance misuse.

Visit our Safer Neighbourhoods website

Safer Neighbourhoods Partnerships were formed as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership is one of 376 partnerships across England and Wales.
 
The NLSNP was formerly known as the Community Safety Partnership. In April 2004, it merged with the Drug Action Team. It also took on the additional responsibility for substance misuse. This includes drug and alcohol misuse.

What do we do?

The partnership works on a number of different levels to improve community safety in the area. From an executive boardroom to a resident's living room, Safer Neighbourhoods activity takes many different forms. Examples of the partnership's work include:

  • Meeting together to look at changing trends in crime and drug use
  • Sharing information and ideas about crime and drugs
  • Trying to improve how existing services are delivered
  • Commissioning drug and alcohol treatment services and crime reduction measures
  • Encouraging young people to take up useful leisure activities
  • Working together with residents and voluntary groups on specific neighbourhood problems

Standards for dealing with anti-social behaviour

The Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership has adopted a set of minimum standards that citizens can expect in response to the handling of anti-social behaviour incidents.

MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference)

The Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership supports and promotes the response to domestic abuse by working with partner agencies to provide the MARAC for the North Lincolnshire area.
