Partnering and Engaging for Safer, Stronger Communities 2008

Developing citizen focussed, multi-agency partnerships to realise empowered, socially responsible & assured communities

30th June & 1st July 2008, Jurys Inn, Birmingham

“Only 38% of people feel they can influence decisions in their local area”
(Citizenship Survey, April – September 2007)
“Despite falling crime rates, 40% of the population still thought local crime had increased over the past two years”
(Crime in England and Wales 2006/2007)

With statistics like these it’s no wonder that identifying routes of engagement to build resilient communities is top of the Government agenda. As a member of a community safety and development partnership it’s your role to implement policy into practice. That’s why IQPC’s Partnering & Engaging for Safer, Stronger Communities 2008, taking place 30th June & 1st July, Birmingham, identifies practical strategies to help you develop effective, mutually beneficial partnerships with positive, measurable outcomes.

Bringing together Police, Local Authorities, Fire Services and other key partners, you now have the opportunity to tackle your key challenges collectively in one co-ordinated, national, multi-agency event.
