Vision and Priorities

Our Vision

Every adult, child and place in County Durham will be, and will feel, safe.

Our Pledge

The Safe Durham Partnership pledges to:

  • Listen, engage and work with local communities. 
  • Provide a responsive, consistent and coordinated approach across all agencies.

Together we will:

  • Increase public confidence in services and help to make people feel safe.
  • Tackle behaviour that adversely affects the environment.
  • Improve the safety of victims and children who witness and experience domestic abuse and to reduce repeat incidents of domestic violence. 
  • Reduce the rate of re-offending of adults and young people.
  • Reduce the adverse impact that drugs and alcohol have on individuals and communities. 
  • Reduce serious violent crime across County Durham and in priority locations. 
  • Improve awareness and understanding of terrorist threats and responses among partner organisations.

Our Priorities

The Safe Durham Partnership has developed a Partnership Plan as part of its statutory responsibility to develop a three year plan to tackle priorities identified from the strategic assessment.
