SCEP Partnership Plan

The SCEP Partnership Plan is a rolling three year document, which highlights how the partnership plans to tackle community safety issues that matter to the local community. This Plan will be revised on an annual basis, through reviewing information provided from a wide range of organisations in a Strategic Intelligence Assessment ( SIA ), to ensure that current issues are taken into account into the activities undertaken by SCEP . These activities are also informed through consultation with the community, along with front line practitioners. It also takes into account local emerging issues and new legislative requirements. Following analysis of all the data, intelligence, information and commentary collated as part of the Strategic Intelligence Assessment, a new partnership plan details priority actions for the partnership where a real difference can be made.
