Welcome to the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership website! We are a partnership made up of groups from across Bristol looking at how we work together to safeguard children, safeguard adults at risk, and protect whole communities. We were established in June 2019 and constituted in September 2019 following changes to previous partnership arrangements in Bristol.
Our statutory partners are Bristol City Council, BNSSG Clinical Commissioning Group, and Avon & Somerset Constabulary, but we also have representation and support from different organisations and groups all over Bristol, including from the voluntary sector, education provision, health providers, and others.
The Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership is led by a Chair, Ivan Powell, who is independent of the organisations in Bristol to support scrutiny and challenge to KBSP meetings and help set our priorities.
We deliver our priorities through three Business Delivery Groups: Keeping Children Safe; Keeping Adults Safe; Keeping Communities Safe. You can read more about what they do on the different sections of this website. These groups are also supported by sub groups and task and finish groups which look at key pieces of work. The KBSP is also supported by a business unit.
You can contact the business unit through the Contact Us page for any enquiry related to the work of the Board or this website. Please be aware, as a strategic organisation we do not receive referrals directly.
We want this website to provide useful information about our work in Bristol to the whole community, including professionals involved in safeguarding or community safety, professionals involved in care, children and young people, adults with care and support needs, families and carers, and to the general public.
