Norwich City Council is part of Norfolk’s Countywide Community Safety Partnership (NCCSP) which is made up of all Norfolk district councils, Norfolk County Council, Police, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk along with others, who are committed to working in partnership with victims and communities to tackle crime, antisocial behaviour and community safety.
Using this approach the NCCSP Plan (2018-2021), which sits on the Norfolk County Council website, has determined three key priorities where a multi-agency response is required as the issues are complex and require collaboration to make an impact:
- Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence – working as a beacon of best practice with national domestic abuse charity SafeLives
- Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation – ensuring we embed our response into our safeguarding approach
- County Lines – developing a public health approach to tackling violence and vulnerability

Things Need to Change
A thought-provoking video campaign, highlighting how anyone can be affected by different types of domestic abuse. This was launched in February 2019.
Launched in November 2020, the HEAR campaign calls on any employers in Norfolk to break the silence around domestic abuse and provide support to their staff on this important issue.
Norwich City Football club and the UEA are just two of the organisations that have signed up the campaign to say #NoToDomesticAbuse.
