The partnership is responsible for tackling crime, anti-social behaviour, and drug and alcohol misuse. We also undertake statutory Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHR). It is made up of public service organisations in the city, with representatives from the private and voluntary sectors, and our approach is to work together on a set of joint priorities so we can use our resources most effectively.
The bodies represented on the Community Safety Partnership have a statutory duty to work together to prevent crime and disorder in their area. The partnership is also required by statutory regulation to produce an annual assessment of the levels and patterns of crime, disorder and substance misuse, and agree an annual partnership plan.
The partnership is co-chaired by South Yorkshire Police’s District Commander for Sheffield and the Sheffield City Council Cabinet member for Housing. It also reports in annually, or as requested, to the Council’s Safer and Stronger Communities Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee.
The Safer and Sustainable Communities Partnership Board meets 4 times per year, and the agendas for these meetings will be published on this page.

Domestic Homicide Reviews
The area community safety partnership is required to carry out a statutory Domestic Homicide Review if there has been:
- a known domestic homicide
- a suspected domestic homicide
- a suicide under some circumstances has happened
The purpose of a Domestic Homicide Review is to:
- contribute to a better understanding of the nature of domestic abuse
- highlight areas of good practice
- establish the lessons that can be learned locally and nationally as a result of the domestic homicide
The Domestic Abuse Coordination Team (DACT) facilitates the Domestic Homicide Review process on behalf of the community safety partnership. All Domestic Homicide Reviews and Learning Briefs are now published on the DACT website.
