Eastleigh Community Safety Partnership

Working together to prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour

The Community Safety Partnership is comprised of a number of statutory and voluntary agencies, working together to prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

The members are:

The Partnership is required to undertake an annual Strategic Assessment from which it decides its strategic priorities. These priorities from September 2022 – March 2024 are:

  • Young people prevention from harm
  • Reducing Anti-social behaviour and related low level criminality
  • Tackling Drug related harm

The Partnership will deliver on a number of actions against the three thematic priorities emerging from this report, in order to reduce the impact that threat, risk and harm has on individuals and society as a whole. These actions will be laid out in the Annual Delivery Plan.

Domestic Homicide Reviews

Domestic homicide reviews are carried out to ensure that lessons are learnt when a person has been killed because of domestic violence.

When this happens, the law says that professionals involved in the case must review what happened so that we can identify what needs to be changed and reduce the risk of it happening again in the future.

Domestic homicide review guidance

The Home Office has published guidance on when we need to set up a domestic homicide review and how to do it. The guidance defines a domestic homicide review as a review of the circumstances in which the death of a person aged 16 or over, has or appears to have resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by a person whom he/she was related or had been in an intimate personal relationship, or a member of the same household.

Domestic homicide reviews are not inquiries into how the victim died or into who is responsible.

The purpose of a domestic homicide review

Establish what lessons are to be learned from the domestic homicide regarding the way in which local professionals and organisations work individually and together to safeguard victims.

Identify clearly what those lessons are both within and between agencies, how and within what timescales they will be acted on, and what is expected to change as a result.

Apply those lessons to service responses including changes to policies and procedures as appropriate.

Prevent domestic violence homicide and improve service responses for all domestic violence victims and their children through improved intra and inter-agency working.


The  Community Safety Partnership is required to publish   completed  Domestic Homicide Reviews.

To date, no review has been undertaken in Eastleigh since they became a legal undertaking.
