Nottingham Community Safety Partnership (NCSP) 

The Nottingham Community Safety Partnership (NCSP) is a statutory Community Safety Partnership. 
We are working together with key agencies to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour (ASB), substance use and reoffending.

There are five Responsible Authorities within Nottingham CSP, who have a statutory duty to co-operate in order to formulate and implement a strategy for the reduction of crime and disorder and for combating substance use in their area:

  • Nottingham City Council
  • Nottinghamshire Police
  • Probation
  • Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service
  • Nottingham Integrated Care Board

In addition to the Responsible Authorities, there are a number of other public bodies who have joined the partnership voluntarily. They are:

  • Nottinghamshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Nottinghamshire Violence Reduction Partnership
  • HMP Nottingham
  • It’s in Nottingham
  • Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board
  • The University of Nottingham
  • Nottingham Trent University

The Nottingham Community Safety Partnership Board meets six times a year. The Independent Chair of the Board is Lord Vernon Coaker and the Vice Chair is Damien West, Assistant Chief Fire Officer,
Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service.

The NCSP Board also functions as the Domestic Abuse Local Partnership Board for Nottingham. Nottingham Community Safety Partnership has the overall responsibility for establishing reviews of Domestic Homicides which occur in Nottingham City.

NCSP also functions as the Combatting Drugs Partnership Board, as defined in the statutory guidance for the From Harm to Hope national drug strategy. Locally, the arrangement is known as the Substance Use Strategic Partnership.

The Government strategy 'Call to End Violence against Women and Girls' was published in Nov 2010 and included an action to implement Section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act (2004), putting in place the Statutory Requirement to conduct Domestic Violence Homicide Reviews. This was implemented on the 13th of April 2011. To read more, click here to download the PDF Document from GOV.UK - “Call to End Violence against Women and Girls” (published November 2010)

The revised "Ending Violence against Women and Girls" Government strategy 2016-2020 aims to promote learning from Domestic Homicide reviews to embed best practice, implement actions from DHRs and share learning. 

The purpose of a DHR is to: 

a) Establish what lessons are to be learned from domestic homicide regarding the way in which local professionals and organisations work individually and together to safeguard victims;

b) Identify clearly what those lessons are both within and between agencies, how and within what timescales they will be acted on, and what is expected to change as a result; 

c) Apply these lessons to service responses, including changes to inform national and local policies and procedures as appropriate; 

d) Prevent domestic violence and homicide and improve service responses for all domestic violence and abuse victims and their children by developing a co-ordinated multi-agency approach to ensure that domestic abuse is identified and responded to effectively at the earliest opportunity;

e) Contribute to a better understanding of the nature of domestic violence and abuse; and

f) Highlight good practice.
