Data transparency

The Local Government Transparency Code was published by the Government in May 2014 and updated in 2015. The Code sets out key principles for local authorities in creating greater transparency through the publication of public data. The Code sets out a mandatory and recommended set of data for publication. The data subjects listed below are taken from the Code.

Grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations

The Service does not give grants but is committed to forming or joining Community Safety partnerships that assist us in achieving our organisational priorities.  Community Safety Partnerships are established on a regular basis and where appropriate this may include an element of funding which would be recorded and monitored through an official partnership agreement.


The word ‘partnership’ is used with increasing frequency in public, private and voluntary sectors and can mean different things to different people.  In the context of the Service, a Community Safety partnership is a joint working arrangement where the partners:

  •              Are otherwise independent bodies
  •              Agree to cooperate to achieve common goals and outcomes for the community
  •              Share accountability, risks and/or resources
  •              Create an organisational structure with agreed processes and programmes.

If you are interested in exploring the opportunity of establishing a Community Safety partnership with the Service please email

If you would like support in seeking funding or grants for a community safety project please contact our partner organisation SAFE South West
