Safer Leeds is the Community Safety Partnership for the city which was set up following the Crime and Disorder Act in 1998.
The partnership aims to reduce crime and the fear of crime in communities around Leeds and the Safer Leeds Plan aims to tackle problems of greatest concern.
Safer Leeds supports the 'Begging – there is always an alternative’ campaign'.
Most of the beggars in Leeds city centre are not sleeping rough; and free food, free shelter, free advice and support are available from a range of services across the city.
To make a real difference to someone’s life, you could make a donation to one of the charities who work to help the people of Leeds and do not charge for their services - please see external links for more information.
There is always an alternative to begging – please do not fund a bad habit!
The Safer Leeds Partnership has an Executive and a Board which is made up of a number of key organisations in Leeds, including
- West Yorkshire Police
- West Yorkshire Probation Service
- The Fire Service
- The Prison Service
- The National Health Service
