Free toolkit to keep caring for your community
The South Cambs Community Safety Partnership – a partnership between South
Cambridgeshire District and Cambridgeshire County councils; the Police, Fire and
Rescue Services; the Probation Service; and the NHS – has created a toolkit to help
local people keep caring for their community as the pressures of the pandemic ease.
As we approach the final stage of restrictions easing, many volunteers are thinkingabout putting in place longer-term structures to build community cohesion, and to tackle some of the other concerns that residents have.
The six packs within the toolkit cover: Combating loneliness and isolation; Reaching your community; Making the local environment safer and greener; Crime prevention in your community; Preventing antisocial behaviour; Tackling road-related concerns.
The toolkit also provides advice on how to encourage fellow residents to join in, as
well as how to find out what the community thinks about the issues in question, and offers case studies from community groups which have successfully taken similar action before.
The toolkit is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC),
which awarded the funding to the South Cambs Community Safety Partnership of
which South Cambridgeshire District Council is a partner.
