Welcome to Safer Portsmouth

The Safer Portsmouth Partnership (SPP) is responsible for reducing crime and substance misuse in Portsmouth. The SPP brings together local organisations to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and re-offending in Portsmouth, ensuring that the city stays a safe place to live in, work in and visit.

In June 2019, the Safer Portsmouth Partnership and the Trust merged with the Health and Wellbeing Board to create a single overarching strategic planning partnership for the city. Members of the Safer Portsmouth Partnership have joined the Health and Wellbeing Board and will remain responsible for making decisions to keep the city safe, reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and substance misuse.

We use a commissioning framework which has been agreed by partners and provides a basis for how we design and commission services in Portsmouth.

Other key and closely linked partnerships in the city are the Safeguarding Adults’ Board, the Safeguarding Childrens’ Partnership and the Health and Wellbeing Board.
