3. Update on CCG themes
Improvement plans for CCGs Youth work going on in Ellesmere Port – listening project being conducted. Op Pandas – issues relating to the Covid19 restrictions (university students travelling from England into Wales) Diversity of membership – any contacts in the Gypsy, Roma Traveller communities to join the next meeting. WL advised that they scoped to see whether there was interest within the community but concerns of how they will be perceived by their fellow community members were raised so may prove difficult to have a representative. Project to start once posts have been recruited into. The “We’re Still Here” report finds that people feel connected within their community but not to the wider community and that’s where we need to focus the project around building that connection working with all the agencies available. Post requires the right person and unfortunately been unable to recruit to the position so far. Covid restrictions are adding to the difficulties of engaging with communities. An action has been added onto the matrix. Pc and PCSO allocated to each so all 122 beats have a local PCSO and PC. Are being receiving additional training regarding GRT communities to enhance relationships between the GRT community, police and wider community. Hate crime has been seen to be reported directly to the police which is evidence of the work that is being done within the communities.
