Tricia Spacey from Fife Council was seconded to work between SCSN and the Scottish Government from late 2018 into early 2019 to develop a community safety narrative building on the work undertaken by Hayley Barnet in 2017. Tricia’s unique position, bringing her experience from working within a local partnership setting to this work balanced between two national organisations, allowed her to develop a really rich picture of where community safety fits; and, what this work entails for those doing it.

The narrative was created with partners and was designed to aid the understanding of community safety as a policy area and support people to make the case for community safety in a range of settings and landscapes.

This event will be held in Tricia’s home area, Fife, and is a chance to come together over lunch (which will be provided) and hear from Tricia about her work and findings and an offer to have a conversation about the narrative. We are also offering the space to reflect and discuss what it means for community safety partnerships, your practice and the links that we could/should have with other areas. There will also be ample time for networking in lieu of the Regional group meetings this Autumn/Winter and a chance to come together as a broader network with the SCSN staff team and connect!
