HC Deb 10 July 2002 vol 388 c963W
12. Mr. Trimble

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what role he plans for voluntary and community organisations in the proposed community safety partnerships. [65810]

Dr. John Reid

Community Safety Partnerships are made up of the statutory organisations responsible for the delivery of services at a local level. The Partnership should engage with voluntary and community organisations to identify issues of concern at a local level and develop collaborative ways of tackling these issues. The Partnership should determine how best to interface with the voluntary and community sector.
