The Welsh Audit Office (WAO) are carrying out a study into community safety across Wales and we want to hear from you.

What is community safety?

Community safety is how individuals feel about the places where they live, work and spend leisure time.

It is a major part of what makes an area a good or bad place to live, work, or spend time in.

Community safety in our area is influenced by how well organisations such as the police, the Police and Crime Commissioner, the local authority, the voluntary sector and others – work together to identify priorities, coordinate services and measure success.

Do these organisations agree on what the priorities are in our area? Are they able to work together to tackle these priorities?

Do they consult with residents to identify these priorities, and then keep residents informed of progress?

The survey will look at:

  • Who is in charge of community safety our area?
  • Do you know what the community safety priorities are in place?
  • How well do the organisations in your area cooperate with each other?
  • Have organisations asked you for your views when they have been planning services?

Your opinion will form part of the WAO ‘evidence base’ as they look at how community safety is managed, how well organisations consult and engage with the public, and if the relationships between the crucial organisations are working.

This survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and your responses will be completely anonymous. The survey will close on Friday 30 October 2015.

A report into the findings will be published next year on Wales Audit Office website.
