Serious Violence Duty Strategy - 2. Local partnership arrangements

In the London borough of Hammersmith & Fulham we are following the London guidance and the Community Safety Partnership will be the lead partnership for implementation and ensuring compliance with the duty.

A Serious Violence Working Group has been established to develop the strategy, strategic needs assessment, and agree on the delivery plan. Membership of the group includes all the duty holders. The Serious Violence Working Group will report to the Community Safety Partnership.
