The Oldham Community Safety and Cohesion Partnership is made up of representatives from the police, council, fire and rescue services, probation, community rehabilitation services, positive steps and the voluntary, community and faith sector.
It is the job of this partnership to ‘keep people in Oldham safe and build communities that live well together’ and its new plan for 2016-19 aims to do just that. It is a plan that tackles difficult issues including domestic violence, drugs and alcohol abuse, child sexual exploitation, modern slavery and much more. It also has a bigger focus on community cohesion and building an Oldham where people live well together.
The 2016-19 plan cover 5 priorities:
- Tackle crime and anti-social behaviour
- Protect people and communities from harm
- Reduce offending and re-offending
- Build confident and cohesive communities and
- Build and strengthening partnerships.
