6 Aug 2012     Last updated: 8 Oct 2014

NICVA is currently seeking nominations for voluntary and community sector representatives on the Department of Justice’s Regional Steering Group on Community Safety.

The purpose of the Regional Steering Group on Community Safety is to:

  • Provide strategic oversight of implementation of the Community Safety Strategy and Delivery Plan
  • Assist the Delivery Groups to deal with any barriers to implementation of the Strategy or Delivery Plan
  • Ensure that synergies between the work of the Delivery Groups are exploited (eg links between Anti-Social Behaviour and Alcohol and Drugs)
  • Ensure that any cross-cutting actions from the Delivery Groups are taken forward effectively (eg media/communications issues, joint research)
  • Ensure any linkages with other related Government strategies are identified in particular Reducing Offending Framework, DARD Rural White Paper, Prisons Review, Youth Justice Review etc.

Two nominees will be selected to represent the sector and will be expected to disseminate any information about the work of the Regional Steering Group. A member will also be required to proactively seek input to the steering group, particularly on cross-cutting issues.

The membership of the Regional Steering Group, detailed below, reflects the partnership approach that is required across Government to effectively deliver the outcomes in the Community Safety Strategy.
