Malvern Hills Community Safety Partnership

The Malvern Hills Community Safety Partnership (MHCSP) is the statutory Community Safety Partnership (CSP) for the Malvern Hills district.

MHCSP brings together public sector agencies who share resources in order to create a safer district to and tackle the problems that affect our local communities.

Members of the Malvern Hills Community Safety Partnership include:

  • Malvern Hills District Council
  • West Mercia Police
  • YMCA Worcestershire  
  • Herefordshire and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue Service
  • Fortis Living
  • Worcestershire County Council
  • Malvern Hills Neighbourhood Watch Association 
  • Freedom Leisure

Representatives of each agency meet on a quarterly basis to discuss strategies that aim to reduce the levels of Crime and ASB in local neighbourhoods, as well as reduce the fear of crime across the district.

The overriding aim of the MHCSP is for its members to work together to ensure that crime and ASB are reduced and that the district is a place where residents are safe and feel safe.

The aim is to improve the quality of life for the people of South Worcestershire by:

  • Tackling crime
  • Reassuring the public
  • Building community cohesion and reducing anti-social behaviour
  • Reducing the harm caused by illegal drugs and alcohol

Priorities

  • Criminal damage

ASB: Anti-Social Behaviour

Community safety partners both individually and collectively have a duty to deal with anti-social behaviour.

All ASB should first be reported to West Mercia Police by dialling 101 (the non-emergency number). The police will then contact us if it is a matter we can help with.

Hate Crime

A hate incident is motivated by a person's hatred of other people because of their actual or perceived:
 • Race, Colour, Ethnic Origin, Nationality or National Origins
 • Religion
 • Sexual Orientation
 • Gender or Gender Identity
 • Disability
 • Age

A victim of a hate incident does not have to be a member of a minority group or someone who is generally considered to be ‘vulnerable'. You do not have to tolerate hate and reporting any incident, no matter how minor can make a difference.

To report a hate incident contact 101 to make a report or complete a reporting form. You can report anonymously if you wish, but we would like you to give your details so that we can help and support you. 

Domestic Abuse

There are many forms of domestic abuse which include: physical, sexual, psychological, social or economic abuse, or neglect of an individual. Forced marriage and honour crimes are also forms of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is a crime that is largely hidden behind closed doors, and can leave victims feeling powerless and isolated. Some people don't even realise they are being abusive but that doesn't make it acceptable or that you have to tolerate it.
