Safer Guildford Partnership action plan 2020-21
The SGP uses the experience and knowledge of local partners to produce a Partnership Plan. This is agreed by the Safer Guildford Partnership Executive.
The Partnership Plan has an annual action plan which responds to current issues. The delivery of the Partnership Plan is supported by operational delivery groups. These groups use a problem-solving approach to address key issues.
