The Stronger Communities Board

The Stronger Communities Board is our governing body and is chaired by a representative from one of the responsible authorities. The board meet quarterly and this provides a forum for senior staff from the partnerships statutory members to share information and advice on key issues.


Achieving safer communities depends on everyone working together to find local solutions to local problems.  In addition to our statutory partners, we also work closely with a wide range of public sector, voluntary, community and private organisations. Below is a list of just a few non-statutory organisations we work with:

  • Best bar None
  • Healthwatch Torbay
  • Glo Torbay
  • Integrated Youth Support Services
  • Prison & Probation Service
  • Police and Crime Commissioner Devon and Cornwall
  • Street Pastors
  • Torbay Safeguarding Adults Board
  • Torbay Safeguarding Children Board
  • Trading Standards
  • Victim Support

Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC)

Although not a ‘responsible authority’ under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, Police and Crime Commissioners work closely with Community Safety Partnerships to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.  Funding for CSPs comes from the Office of The Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) and therefore both have a duty to work closely and take each other’s priorities into account.
