Voluntary sector views on the community safety priorities for East Sussex

Voluntary sector views on the community safety priorities for East Sussex



We want to hear from you about how the people your organisation supports are affected by crime and anti-social behaviour, and what you think our main community safety priorities should be in East Sussex.

It’s important we hear from the voluntary and community sector, so your help would be really appreciated.


Why We Are Consulting

The Safer Communities Partnership involves a range of agencies that are committed to ensuring East Sussex remains a safe place for residents and visitors. It aims to provide a coordinated approach to reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in East Sussex.


Our work is guided by the priorities that we have agreed for joint working. The priorities are developed through a strategic assessment and engagement with local residents and organisations.


Our current priorities are:

  • preventing vulnerable people from being exploited and recruited by organised crime groups
  • cyber crime, cyber bullying and online safety
  • protecting vulnerable victims of fraud and cyber-enabled crime
  • modern slavery and human trafficking


We are now researching what our next priorities should be. What you tell us in this survey will inform our strategic assessment and help us to develop our new priority areas. We will also use the results of the survey to kick start the discussions with board members at our Safer Communities Development Day on the 4th July.
