About the Bridgend Community Safety Partnership
Supporting communities in Bridgend to be safe and cohesive
The Bridgend Community Safety Partnership (CSP) involves various agencies from the public, private and voluntary sector that work together to reduce crime, disorder and fear of crime locally, in order to improve the quality of life and to create a safer living and working environment.
The partnership aims to tackle the needs of both individuals and communities to enable them to feel safer and enjoy increased opportunities within their local communities.
Following the implementation of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act 2015, the decision was taken by Bridgend Public Services Board (PSB) to embed the activities of the Bridgend CSP into its own Wellbeing Assessment and planning activities and by making it a sub board of the PSB.
Supporting Communities in Bridgend to be safe and cohesive is included in the Bridgend Wellbeing Plan and is the overarching objective for Bridgend CSP.
