Community safety is about delivering local solutions to local problems that have been identified by local people.
We develop and deliver projects for safer communities with organisations including:
Residents and businesses can raise their community views through Neighbourhood Partnership meetings. Neighbourhood Partnerships provide an opportunity for local communities to have a greater say and are well placed to collect, consider and prioritise local concerns. They bring together local councillors, neighbourhood police teams, community groups and local residents to shape services such as street cleaning, park maintenance, local recycling schemes, minor traffic schemes, highway maintenance and community safety
"Community safety means preventing, reducing or containing the social, environmental and intimidatory factors which affect people's right to live without fear of crime and which impact upon their quality of life. It includes preventative measures that contribute to crime reduction and tackle anti-social behaviour."

Previous Domestic Homicide reviews
A Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) was undertaken in 2015 by the Carlisle and Eden Community Safety Partnership following a death in Eden district. The review followed legislation and criteria outlined in the Home Office guidance
Multi Agency Statutory Guidance for the conduct of Domestic Homicide.
A review panel was convened and an independent chair appointed. After several meetings and the collation of specified information and data from partners, an Overview Report and Action Plan were submitted to the Home Office Quality Assurance (HOQA) Panel in December 2015.
The HOQA Panel met on 27 January 2016 and have judged the report and action plan adequate. Amendments have been made to the report, as recommended by HOQA Panel and the legislative requirements to publish the report can now be met.
The Domestic Homicide Review documents from 2015 are available to view below
