Let’s Talk About…the Community Safety Narrative

Hosted by Fife Council and sponsored by the Scottish Community Safety Network

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 was held in Tricia’s home area, Fife, and was 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 also offered 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.
