The Community Safety Partnership sits within the context of ‘place’ as part of the Department of Health and Social Care’s White Paper - Integration and innovation: working together to improve health and social care for all.
Since its inception the Northeast Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance has been working collaboratively at the place level to better understand the health and social care needs of its local population this includes working together at place in the Community Safety Partnership arena.
We know that crime and community safety issues within our population are underpinned by the wider social determinants of health and care, which are heavily influenced by the broad social and economic circumstances into which people are born, live, work and grow old. This can often mean that poorer individuals experiencing worse environments to live and work than people who are better off. Similarly, children growing up in more deprived communities often suffer disadvantages throughout their lives, from educational attainment through to employment prospects, which can affect their physical and mental wellbeing and their likelihood of being involved in crime and disorder and or risk-taking actions in relation to drug and alcohol.
The North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance has committed funding to support the continued efforts with Tendring across place and to support the work of the Community Safety Partnership.
Suffolk and North East Essex ICB (SNEE ICB) agree to transfer a non-recurrent contribution of £35k to support the ongoing work of these Community Safety Partnership Board until 2025.
Areas of focus can include supporting residents at risk of:
•Domestic and sexual violence
•Knife crime
•Risk taking habits including drug usage and alcohol dependence
•The safety of the night - time economy
•Modern slavery


To accept the funding and work with the Suffolk and North East Essex ICB (SNEE ICB) to deliver agreed projects.

Provide Suffolk and North East Essex ICB (SNEE ICB) with a biannual report on the spending plans for the £35K per year until end of 2025.
