Guidance on sharing information to tackle violence

This guidance highlights how community safety partnerships (CSPs) can reduce violence.

Made up of local authorities, the police and other local agencies CSPs can encourage A&Es to collect and share information on time, type and location of assault.

Information can be anonymised, aggregated and shared with local CSPs to identify where violence is happening and inform local interventions to tackle it. Interventions such as restricting alcohol licensing and targeting policing can have a big impact on community safety.

This guidance should also support CSP partners to understand better ways of engaging with their health partners at a local level.
