Community Safety Team
The Community Safety Team sits within the remit of the Trafford Community Safety Partnership.
Our focus is:
- To work together so that people feel safe and are safe in Trafford
- To focus on the prevention and reduction of offending and re-offending
- To support local communities and neighbourhoods to prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour
- To protect members of our community who may be vulnerable to crime
The Community Safety Partnership has 3 key priority areas which are:
- Domestic Abuse
- Neighbourhood Crime
- Anti-Social Behaviour
How we work
In order to ensure the Community Safety Team achieves the above we work on a locality based model, which enables our team to base staff in the heart of communities throughout the Borough of Trafford. This approach ensures that we work with communities to develop ideas to tackle anti social behaviour, and place enforcement at locations that are responsive to residents needs.
What we assist communities with
The Community Safety Team covers a wide range of areas including:
If you are having a dispute with your neighbour, your landlord may be able to help if you are a social housing tenant. If you are a private occupier, we may be able to assist you by providing you with details of mediation organisations in the Greater Manchester area. If you are in receipt of means tested benefits, we may be able to help fund part of this.
Noise Nuisance can be reported to our Noise Pollution team.
We have also produced a good practice guidance document which we are piloting in Altrincham to help with disputes over busking.
How we can work with you
We believe in working with communities to tackle social issues. By working in this manner we ensure we meet the needs of local people & embed skills in communities.
