Increasing levels of crime and insecurity in urban neighbourhoods are a worldwide phenomenon. This report provides a summary of the discussions at a Consultation held at St Georges House in Windsor Castle to identify how to make our urban areas safer places to live and work. Twenty-five people with a wide range of expertise and experience were brought together for two days and developed an Agenda for Action that identified:
- What works and what doesnt in making neighbourhoods safer.
- How to get young people on side.
- How to get good projects into a sustainable process.This report includes information on how to change the delivery system from the current top down and centralised control approach towards giving local people a much greater role within their local community. It also sets out in detail how to achieve the recommendations included in the Agenda for Action.
