Richmond upon Thames Community Safety Partnership

The Richmond upon Thames Community Safety Partnership (CSP) brings together local authorities and organisations to prevent and reduce crime in the Borough. The main objective of the partnership is to make Richmond a safe place to live, work, learn and visit – for all.

The Partnership

The partnership was formed in 1998 in response to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

The Act places a responsibility on the Police and the Council to work together alongside other key partners to prevent crime and reduce reoffending in their areas.

We work in partnership with local police, probation, health authority, Registered Social Landlords, voluntary sector, local residents and businesses under the umbrella of the CSP.

Members of the Community Safety Partnership

The partners work together and co-operate with a number of other local public and private sector organisations to ensure Richmond is a safe place to live, work and visit. They are:

Community Safety strategy

The partnership decides on local priorities for tackling crime and anti-social behaviour and develops plans and strategies in response:

We are working together to achieve our key priorities:

  • Creating safer neighbourhoods
  • Reducing adult offending and adult reoffending
  • Tackling violence against women and girls (VAWG)
  • Keeping children and young people safe
  • Tackling hate crime, radicalisation and extremism

The CSP has a Strategy Board made up of senior officers from each of the partners, which meets on a quarterly basis, to review and monitor the performance of the Partnership against the current strategy.

Violence Against Women and Girls strategy

Richmond is committed to developing an ambitious, long-term strategic approach to ending violence against women and girls (VAWG).

Our strategy is based on a preventative model that has, at the heart of it, plans to deliver the cultural and behavioural shift needed to deliver long-term change in men’s attitudes to women. Most importantly, this strategy is informed by survivors.
