The Partnership

Welcome to the Safer Colchester Partnership website where you can find out more about the work of the Partnership in keeping Colchester safe. The Partnership consists of a number of important organisations in Colchester and our colleagues in the NHS, Essex Police, Essex Fire and Rescue Service, Colchester Community Voluntary Service , Colchester Borough Homes, the Garrison , Essex Probation and  Essex County Council all play a vital role in making Colchester a safer place to live, work and visit.

I hope you find this website a useful source of information . We would welcome ideas and information from individuals and community groups about how we can keep Colchester safe  and I would be delighted to hear from you with any contributions.
