Strategy for Safer Gloucestershire

Safer Gloucestershire was established 12 months ago with the aim of ensuring a coherent, strategic approach to the delivery of community safety activity in Gloucestershire.

A new draft Safer Gloucestershire strategy sets out how Safer Gloucestershire will contribute towards improved community safety for all citizens of Gloucestershire, particularly the most vulnerable.

You are invited to share your comments and thoughts on the draft strategy. For example, is there anything you think should be emphasised, is there anything missing?

You can find the strategy here: Safer Glos Strategy April 2019

Please send your comments and feedback to by the end of May.

What matters to you? Conversation on local NHS Long Term Plan

The National NHS long term (10 year) plan aims to make sure everyone gets the best start in life, deliver world class care for major health problems and support people to age well.

One Gloucestershire is now seeking views to help shape the local version of the plan which will be published later in the year. The conversations will cover everything from helping people and communities to stay healthy and active to developing support and services in people’s homes, local GP surgeries, the community and specialist services in hospital.

How can you have your say?

You can find an information booklet, “Developing our local NHS Long Term Plan – what matters to you”, online survey and an events listing at Follow @One_Glos on Twitter for regular updates. The closing date for feedback is 19 May.

Social Investment Tax Relief

HM Treasury has published a Call for Evidence to gain a better understanding about how the Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) has been used since its introduction in 2014, including levels of take up and what impact it has had on social enterprises’ access to finance.

The SITR has a sunset clause which will bring the scheme to an end in April 2021, and this call for evidence will help inform a decision about the future of the relief. 

You can view and respond to the consultation here. The deadline for responses is 17 July.
