Community Well-being and Safety Partnership

Community Well-being and Safety Partnership

The Community Well-being and Safety Partnership (CWSP) integrates a wide range of co-dependent outcomes. These include ensuring our communities feel safer and addressing the inequalities, deprivation and poverty experienced in our least advantaged communities.

A CWSP delivery plan has been developed following the publication of the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan
 
The work builds on historical work of the CWSP and that of its partners, but with a strong focus for all outcomes to start development within the Alloa South and East communities (those of highest poverty and inequalities).

An asset based approach will be taken to all of the activity, which will use existing assets within communities (eg partners, community members/groups or physical buildings) and take a networking, signposting and capacity building approach which empowers individuals and communities in striving for the improvements sought.
 
Partners have identified the following priorities for this team:

  • Reducing substance misuse
  • Supporting a wide range of staff to be able to refer/signpost clients into services on money, benefits and debt
  • Antisocial Behaviour (including development of a community safety plan for Alloa South and East)
  • Reducing fuel and food poverty (including writing fuel poverty and food poverty strategies)
  • Mental health, stress reduction and personal resilience (particularly for women and girls)
  • Reducing suicide rates (including writing a suicide prevention strategy)
  • Employability and access to advice services, for those furthest from employment
  • Increasing access to sports and active living programmes for young people (especially girls)
  • Increasing and supporting opportunities for lifelong learning and volunteering particularly in areas of poverty

The team has a sub group structure and the strategic CWSP group co-ordinates all areas of partnership work along with a performance and reporting framework to capture that work and its impact.
