Safer Trafford Partnership

The Safer Trafford Partnership is the lead partnership on the delivery of the Safety & Reassurance Key Objective and its priority outcomes in the Sustainable Community Strategy document 'Trafford Vision 2021: A blueprint'.

The Safer Trafford Partnership was formed as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, which places a duty on local services such as the Police, Council, Fire Service, Health, Children’s Services, Housing and Probation to work together to reduce crime. It is jointly chaired by Chief Superintendent Mary Doyle of Greater Manchester Police (Trafford/Salford Division) and Theresa Grant, Chief Executive of Trafford Council

The purpose of the Safer Partnership is:

  • To reduce crime and the fear of crime through a multi-agency action led partnership
  • To create and sustain inclusive, vibrant communities where people feel safe
  • To ensure that Services and agencies work in Partnership in accordance with the Crime and Disorder Act 1998

Trafford Takes Gold in Annual 'Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise' Awards

Trafford Partnership has been presented with the gold award in the ‘Police Project of the Year’ category at the 2016 ‘Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise Awards’ held earlier in March.

Working in conjunction with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) the project has seen the introduction of a dedicated Specialist Mental Health Practitioner from Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust working alongside the integrated partnership Safer Communities Team at Stretford police station for the first time.

Assisting with emerging risk cases, the role of the practitioner includes engaging with individuals whilst supporting the development of a multi-agency plan of care and intervention. Originally devised to ensure vulnerable people that police come into contact with receive the most appropriate care, the project has demonstrated a much wider potential to reduce demands on the police and other emergency services.

Service users who have been asked about their experiences reflect that the new way of working introduces a personal relationship that benefits them, provides a means to interact and begin a supported journey that provides stability and ultimately leads towards recovery.

The pilot has now been mainstream funded and Trafford has been asked to develop a proposal for how it can be rolled out across other areas of Greater Manchester.
