Anti-social behaviour, safety concerns while travelling on using public transport, alcohol and drug-related crime, youth disorder....... everyone has an issue that affects how safe they feel in their community – and most have a view on what can be done to improve matters!
This is YOUR CHANCE to get involved and have your say on the issues that matter the most.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Community Safety Partnership, which coordinates and drives the efforts of the many agencies working to improve the quality of life in the county borough, is once again holding its Community Cohesion Survey.
The short, easy-to-use survey gives you the chance to say how you feel about your local community, including your perception of safety at home, what is it like out in the town centres and other issues.
All information and views gathered from the survey, which is completely anonymous, will be used to shape future services and ensure residents and communities receive the support they need.
It will also provide the chance for you to find out more about how to get involved in actively making your community a safer place to live and how the Community Safety Partnership’s work benefits you.
The Community Safety Partnership brings together the efforts of all agencies that have a part to play in improving life in Rhondda Cynon Taf, including Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Youth Engagement and Participation Service, Anti-Social Behaviour, Licensing and Trading Standards Teams, as well as South Wales Police, Youth Offending Service and South Wales Fire and Rescue.
Cllr Paul Cannon, Chair of the Community Safety Board that leads the partnership, said: “We hope residents from all walks of life get involved in our Community Cohesion survey, which is now a regular feature of the Partnership’s work.
“It is completely anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete, but it allows partner agencies to secure the information and community feedback they need to ensure they are targeting their action and activity where it is needed the most.
“By working so closely with our communities, we are able to secure a real insight into the issues that matter the most and make a real difference through work including our ongoing Youth Engagement project to tackle anti-social behaviour, community liaison, safer town centres campaign and more.”
