Sheffield Gangs Strategy 2012-2015

This strategy was developed by the Sheffield First Safer and Sustainable Communities Partnership (SSCP).  We are Sheffield’s Community Safety Partnership, and are responsible for tackling crime, anti-social behaviour, and drug and alcohol misuse, and promoting community cohesion, community involvement and volunteering.

The SSCP is made up of all the public services in the city, with representatives from the private and voluntary sectors, and together we plan how we can work together most effectively.

This strategy covers the period from April 2012 to March 2015 and builds upon Sheffield’s first Gang Prevention Strategy from 2008 and the work done as a result of that.  Although the strategy runs for 3 years we will review it at least once a year to ensure that we are making good progress and still tackling the right things.

Overview Reports and Executive Summaries of the Domestic Homicide Review of the deaths of Adult A, Adult C and Adult D in Sheffield

Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) came into force on 13th April 2011.  They were established on a statutory basis under Section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Adults Act (2004).  The act states that a DHR should be a review ‘of the circumstances in which the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by—
(a) a person to whom he was related or with whom he was or had been in an intimate personal relationship, or
(b) a member of the same household as himself, held with a view to identifying the lessons to be learnt from the death’

The purpose of a DHR is to:

  • Establish what lessons are to be learned from the domestic homicide regarding the way in which local professionals and organisations work individually and together to safeguard victims;
     
  • 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;
     
  • Apply these lessons to service responses including changes to policies and procedures as appropriate; and
     
  • Identify what needs to change in order to reduce the risk of such tragedies happening in the future to prevent domestic violence homicide and improve service responses for all domestic violence victims and their children through improved intra and inter-agency working. 


The Home Office guidance states that “Publication of Overview Reports and the Executive Summary will take place following agreement from the Quality Assurance Group at the Home Office and should be published on the local CSP web page.”

Partnership Plan 2011-2014

The Partnership Plan (below) sets out what our shared priorities will be for the next 3 years, what actions we are going to take to address them, and how we will know what effect we are having.

As part of the wider Sheffield First Partnership, our partnership plan contributes to, and takes its lead from, the City Strategy 2010-2020.

Each organisation involved in the Safer and Sustainable Communities Partnership also has its own plans and strategies that cover the next 3 years, and we have worked together to make sure the partnership plan matches up with these corporate objectives.

Since the production of our last Partnership Plan in 2008, there have been many changes to the way we work, both locally and nationally. This includes a shift towards localism in public services and a challenging economic climate. This means that we will need to work even closer together in partnership to tackle our priorities.

The establishment of Community Assemblies in Sheffield means that communities now have more influence on how decisions affecting local services are made.
