Wealden is one of the safest places to live, work and learn in the country. The Safer Wealden Partnership is working hard to keep it that way and indeed make it even safer.
The Safer Wealden Partnership brings together a number of agencies from the public, private and voluntary sector, working together to make the community safer and reduce the fear of crime.
Our aim is simple: ‘To improve people’s lives in Wealden, working in partnership to reduce the levels of crime and anti-social behaviour and manage the fear of crime’.
The Safer Wealden Partnership includes representatives from the following agencies:
- East Sussex County Council
- East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service
- Sussex Police (external link)
- Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner
- Wealden District Council
- Safer East Sussex Team
- Wealden District Association of Local Councils (WDALC)
- Youth Development Service
The Safer Wealden Partnership each year identifies its priorities and these are combined with other crime reduction partnerships across East Sussex to form the East Sussex Safer Communities Partnerships’ Business Plan .
