Meeting The Challenge – The Third Sector & Crime Reduction

February 3, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The criminal justice system is changing rapidly, with PCCs up for re-election in May 2016, and the re-organisation of police, prisons and probation. In West Yorkshire the PCC is leading a more joined up approach.

Community Safety Partnerships are playing an increasingly important role at district level. The changes are impacting directly on the third sector nationally and locally. Both the risks and opportunities are endless. This event is the only West Yorkshire annual gathering for everybody, from across all sectors, who wants to understand the changes better, engage in discussion about what they mean for West Yorkshire, and promote collaboration across public and third sectors. And it’s free!

If you are working in any of the following areas it should be relevant to you:

  • Services for victims and witnesses
  • Reducing re-offending by tackling its underlying causes
  • Domestic abuse, sexual violence and child sexual exploitation
  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Community engagement and service user involvement

There will be a particular focus on the growing strategic role that the third sector (voluntary, community, faith, social enterprise) is playing in the criminal justice system. Keynote speakers will include Mark Burns-Williamson OBE, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner; it will be chaired by Cllr Imran Hussain, Chair of Bradford’s Community Safety Partnerships. The new West Yorks – Finding Independence Programme will provide a service user’s perspective. Demand for places is likely to be high. They reserve the right to restrict it to one place per organisation.
