Partners and Communities Together

The Wigan and Leigh Community Safety Partnership is made up of representatives
from different council departments and external agencies from the public, private
and voluntary sectors which work together to promote safer, stronger, sustainable
communities. We have piloted a community engagement approach called Partners
and Communities Together (PACT for short) as a way of identifying and responding
to the issues that matter to local communities. We are currently in the process of rolling
out PACT across the Borough. More information will be made available when PACT
is rolled out in your local area.

More information on PACT

Partnership operations
Working in partnership to bring down crime and anti social behaviour has proved to
be very successful. Operation Treacle and Challenge are the largest of our operations.


Our mission
The Partnership will plan, deliver and evaluate positive action that reduces crime, fear
of crime, drugs related harm and offending behaviour through multi-agency work acting
alongside local residents - with the aim of creating safe, healthy and thriving communities.

Our vision
Our local community will know that rates of crime, disorder and drugs misuse have been
reduced substantially. They will know why and how this has been accomplished and will
live more secure and healthy lives as a result.

Our aims
We aim to:

Reduce recorded crime
Increase Public confidence on crime and in the Police
Increase the number of successful drug treatments
Reduce the number of offenders who re-offend
Reduce the number of young people who start to offend
Narrow the gap between our most deprived communities and the average on rates of crime
Increase the voluntary and community sectors participating in the Partnership
Produce cleaner streets and better green spaces
