During these unprecedented times, partner organisations have been working harder than ever to keep Dudley a safe borough.
Dudley’s community safety partnership, safe & sound has launched a number of campaigns since the lockdown came into force, including providing support and guidance to victims of domestic abuse, encouraging online safety and highlighting the routes to reporting hate crime.
The partnership’s latest campaign encourages people to visit their website’s help hub www.dudleysafeandsound.org/help-hub to access information, help and advice on all things community safety.
The handy hub has information and advice on topics such as domestic abuse, exploitation, online safety for adults and young people, hate crime, scams and more.
Councillor Laura Taylor, cabinet member for housing, communities and residents’ welfare, said:
"These are difficult and challenging times and as a partnership we want people to feel safe wherever they are in our borough. Having access to the right information and advice is part of this.
"I would really encourage people to take a look at safe & sound’s website, in particular the help hub which is packed with really useful information and contacts should you need them.
"People can also find out more about the partnership and how organisations in the borough actively work together."
Sally Bourner, Dudley Neighbourhood Policing Unit Commander and chair of safe & sound, Dudley’s Community Safety Partnership, said:
"Organisations across our borough are working harder than ever to make sure support is there when people need it for any community safety concern.
"The safe & sound website has information on getting support, including ways you can contact the right services if you need to."
