NORTH DEVON AND TORRIDGE 

The North Devon and Torridge Community Safety Partnerships operate under a single board which encourages a seamless multi-agency approach to localised issues across Northern Devon, and a robust working relationship with other statutory and non-statutory agencies in the community.

North Devon and Torridge CSPs consist of numerous partners that each play an active role in setting the agenda and contributing to our evidence based priorities – each of which is given below.

PRIORITY WORK

The priorities for North Devon and Torridge Community Safety Partnerships are: 

Priority one: protecting the vulnerable

The broadest of our priorities focuses on crimes that often affect the most vulnerable in our  society, for example: child sexual exploitation, modern slavery or radicalisation and substance misuse. With each we are fundamentally concerned with the impact on our communities.

Priority two: domestic abuse and sexual violence

A multi-agency approach to domestic abuse and sexual violence allows the victim to be at the heart of all that we do. Having two Devon wide services – DDAS and NDADA – that operate important provisions such as a hostel, means that the CSPs can play a part in coordinating these services.

Priority three: substance misuse

Utilising a partnership approach to identify, support and tackle alcohol and drug related issues within our communities. We work with specialist drug and alcohol services (both commissioned and voluntary) which in turn work with both service users and their families in a range of ways to reduce harm and support recovery.

Priority four: emerging threats

To allow the CSPs to respond quickly and effectively to new concerns, we review emerging issues in our communities and where necessary, will set up a specialist group from within our partners to work on a specific problem. Any of our partners can bring matters to the board for consideration and action.
