The Rochdale Safer Communities Partnership

The Rochdale Safer Communities Partnership is a statutory partnership established in October 2000.

Its purpose is to tackle crime and disorder on a multi-agency basis across the borough of Rochdale. Outside the borough, the partnership is actively represented on a wide range of Greater Manchester and regional partnerships and groups with a crime, disorder, drugs and alcohol agenda. Membership of such groups enables the partnership to contribute to jointly developed initiatives with neighbouring partnerships and to take advantage of opportunities to learn from and adopt best practice of leaders in particular areas of work.

The partnership comprises representatives from the 6 ‘responsible authorities’, these are:

  • Rochdale Borough Council
  • Fire and Rescue Authority
  • National Health Service
  • Police
  • Police Authority
  • Probation Trust

Over 30 other public and third sector bodies with a stake in improving community safety in the borough are invited to attend the partnership and its thematic groups.

The main partnership board, which meets quarterly, approves partnership policy, oversees its activities and is accountable for its performance. It is supported by a number of groups with responsibilities for the delivery of strategic priorities, monitoring its performance and commissioning of services and projects.
