HOT at RCHT

June 6th, 2019 by

Innovative ‘HOT Team’ project to address alcohol A&E figures

In April 2018, national figures demonstrated that the number of people being admitted to A&E departments in England is the highest since records began.  Additional research has evidenced that a substantial amount of individuals frequently attending A&E departments are struggling with problematic drug and alcohol use.

Addaction, Cornwall’s commissioned drug and alcohol treatment service, has launched a rapid response team to cut the number of people frequently attending the hospital’s A&E department due to alcohol or drugs.

The HOT Team (Hospital Outreach Team) is the first team in the country to link up with a major Hospital to deliver a collaborative service offer to patients struggling with problematic alcohol and/or drug use, often becoming frequent attenders.

Addaction’s HOT team and RCHT was recently featured on ITV West Country News and the project is clearly thriving; with RCHT reporting a dramatic reduction in frequent attender numbers. The report was overwhelmingly positive and reflected the dynamic and innovative work being done in Cornwall to address the needs of some of our most vulnerable community members.

As a result of the HOT team’s success in Cornwall, the Government is now evaluating the project and considering delivering it across the country’s 50 major hospitals. This project is a great example of the collaborative work between the Commissioning team and Addaction, who continue to support a multi-agency response and service offer to individuals struggling with various vulnerabilities, including drug and alcohol related harm.

Safer Towns One Year On

March 8th, 2019 by

Our Safer Towns Scheme, developed and coordinated by our Community Safety Team, facilitates and supports a coordinated multi-agency approach to community safety issues, to improve feelings of safety and public reassurance, reduce the risk of harm to the community and protect vulnerable groups. The partnerships work to reduce and prevent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour. The scheme was launched last April with full governance developed for each of the towns which include; Penzance, Camborne and Redruth, Falmouth, Truro, Newquay, St Austell, Bodmin, Saltash and Liskeard. The team have successfully established the new Safer Towns and broadened the remit of the three Safer Towns which were already in existence.

An enormous amount of work has taken place over the last year to establish partnership arrangements and develop delivery plans based on crime information provided by our Amethyst Team through Town Profiles and feedback from the Cornwall Council Residents Survey.  New Town Profiles have recently been provided to the Safer Towns with delivery plans for 2019/20 being developed currently to account for changes in crime trends and also emerging issues for next year.

The scheme was supported by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) with £5,000 allocated to each town. Partners have reviewed priorities and put forward proposals for how the funding should be spent locally. There are a number of new exciting projects, campaigns and outcomes which have been delivered in 2018/19 and will be put in place during 2019/20 through the support of the PCC.

All Safer Towns meet on a regular basis to share current intelligence, raise concerns and deal with emerging dynamic issues collectively. A key factor in the success of the scheme is the wide membership of the groups, which include; public, private and voluntary organisations; who are able to feed in local intelligence and local issues. Each town is unique with different community safety priorities, however there have also been a number of initiatives which have been rolled out through all the Safer Towns.

A shoplifting prevention briefing presented by Devon and Cornwall Police’s Crime Prevention Officer has been organised for all Safer Towns, this provides practical information to local businesses and security teams of how to protect themselves from thefts. It also included information on evidence collection and the process around this. We received positive feedback from the sessions run to date and look to run more sessions in the future.

Blue Light Training has been provided to three pilot towns across the County; Penzance, St Austell and Bodmin. Blue Light supports individuals who are change resistant, problematic drug and alcohol users not engaged with treatment, regularly presenting to emergency services. A multi-agency meeting in each of the towns will provide a mechanism to discuss individuals on a regular basis to collectively provide full support.

A large focus for a number of the towns has been concerns around street drinking and vulnerable individuals; awareness work to ensure the public and communities are aware of local support and who to report concerns to has been extremely important in ensuring the right agencies are informed. Multi-agency walkabouts has been effective in providing reassurance to the public and businesses, targeting specific areas where we have been receiving complaints/concerns raised.

Brief overview of a few of the key initiatives which have been delivered in the towns;

  • Agreement to develop and open a town centre community safety hub accessible to the public in Penzance. The lease has been secured by Cornwall Council Nov 2018. Fire Safety assessment and remedial work in progress.
  • A 12 month pilot has been jointly funded by Penzance Town Council and Cornwall Council for an ASB Caseworker specific to Penzance. This post will be recruited to in March.
  • Agreed siting of two sharps bins in the Camborne both bins will be funded from the PCC Safer Town seed funding.
  • Safer Camborne and Safer Redruth have facilitated a review of local service provision for young people in the area. It has identified the need for a youth café in the Redruth area which will provide a safe space for local young people to go. This is still in the planning process; Safer Towns funding for Redruth will contribute to the opening of Redruth Youth Café, the facility will open in September 2019
  • In Redruth, Police and Community Safety staff are piloting monthly joint surgeries for the public regarding ASB concerns
  • Safer Camborne, Safer Redruth and Safer Penzance have held awareness days in each of the towns in order to promote activity regarding anti-social behaviour and crime to reassure public and raise awareness of partnership working in the area;
  • Shop Watch has been introduced to businesses in Redruth and Camborne, which allows shop staff to communicate with each other with the aim to reduce shoplifting by identifying prolific offenders. This is still in its infancy but training from the police prevention officer will be commencing in early 2019.
  • Safer Falmouth provided information to members of the public at Gyllyngvase Beach following public safety concerns. The events were held to provide awareness of the risk to others from leaving barbeques on the beach, as well as the harmful environmental impact.
  • Following an incident of drink spiking Safer Falmouth ran an awareness campaign to local residents. The partnership provided leaflets to households throughout Falmouth outlining how to keep safe whilst drinking as well as offering safety equipment for bottles. Falmouth University and Exeter University also provided awareness to students on the What Will Your Drink Cost campaign.
  • Truro Safe have conducted two walkabouts throughout the City, providing businesses with key contact information, as well as the opportunity to raise any concerns and find out about the work of the partnership.
  • Following concerns of access for emergency services due to poorly parked vehicles blocking roads within Killigrew Gardens, St Erme, Truro Safe; led by Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service, implemented the Think Before You Park initiative. Partners visited households throughout the area and left leaflets highlighting the responsibility drivers have to ensure that roads are accessible and the implications, if this is not considered, on emergency service response.
  • Truro Safe continues to have donation boxes available throughout the City which supports those within the City who are homeless. The partnership was pleased to provide sleeping bags and fund two outreach worker packs using the latest donations from members of the public.
  • Safer St Austell visited residents of St Blazey in August to discuss local issues following concerns that had been made and provide information on support available. Residents reiterated their concerns; which included noise nuisance. The walkabout was successful with approximately 27 households engaged. The partnership also spoke to young people in the community to understand what concerns they have and how these may be addressed. The partnership will be looking into the feedback that was provided and potential changes that could be made, which could positively impact on the issues faced by the community.
  • Further work needed to take place regarding public perception of crime within St Austell; Safer St Austell has updated the Communications Plan to take account of this priority. The objectives continue to be to promote successes and the work of the partnership, target engagement to best address concerns of safety and ensure negative concerns are addressed swiftly and effectively. The group have increased articles for local publications and the website along with social media posts. They have also updated the Community Action Days calendar for 2018/19 to promote the work of the partnership and support services including a very successful Sleep Out Event which raised awareness of homelessness. A new scheme was also introduced following this event to support the local homeless charity and promote signposting.
  • Safer Bodmin has received a full briefing on current county lines activity in the Town from the Police Intelligence Directorate. The group has prioritised raising public awareness of this complex crime and will focus on vulnerability and building resilience.
  • Mapping the services available in Bodmin against the nine reducing reoffending pathways is underway. Once any gaps have been identified it is Safer Bodmin’s ambition to influence and potentially fund services to meet the local needs.
  • Safer Bodmin have supported the Berryfields Community Centre and agreed to contribute towards the funding of this vital youth provision in the town. Planning is also underway on a youth focused event with the Bodmin Watch; this event will be based on the Junior Life Skills events and will incorporate an art work competition with the pupils from Bodmin College.  Additionally, during March 2019 Safer Bodmin will run a survey with pupils from Bodmin College to seek their views on community safety in the town and what activities they engage with and would want to see in Bodmin.  The results of this survey will inform future plans for 2019.20.
  • In Saltash there have been a number of sessions delivered to pupils and parents of Saltash.net School to raise awareness about drug misuse. These have included sessions on the impact of drug use from the police as well as harm reduction / mental health education delivered from YZUP (young persons’ substance misuse service). Safer Saltash have been working closely with Saltash.net secondary school and have recently supported their BeWell whole school drop down day focused on mental wellbeing.
  • Safer Saltash have met with the Tamar Bridge Committee to discuss the issue of people completing suicide off the Tamar Bridge. Further work in partnership with the Committee will now take place with a focus on suicide prevention. Additionally, a recent presentation at a Safer Saltash meeting from the Public Health Healthy Promotions team resulted in a decision by the group to offer a ‘Suicide Talk’ (3 hours) to a multi-disciplined group in Saltash focusing on businesses and community groups (up to 90 delegates).  Following on from this, a core group will be identified and trained in ASIST (2 days) and become Suicide First Aiders.
  • Safer Saltash identified ASB as a priority area; the group have focused on this and supported the Core’s successful OPCC bid for ‘The Friday Night Project’ and provided funding for the Saltmill initiative for young people.  Saltash has a current seasonal issue with tombstoning and work is underway to revise a leaflet containing safety advice on tombstoning and letters have been sent from Safer Saltash to Network Rail regarding concerns over access to the Network Rail owned pillar where young people are tombstoning from.  The group have also agreed to part fund a body worn camera for the local ASB caseworker.  The group are also exploring the opportunity for the Town and Waterfront Wardens to be granted Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) powers.
  • Safer Liskeard has made an evidence based decision to purchase a needle disposal unit to be located outside the Town Council owned Sungirt Toilets. A local arrangement has been reached with regards to the safe emptying and disposal of the clinical waste and signage and comms are currently being developed to support this initiative.
  • Safer Liskeard supported National Domestic Abuse week and held a successful public engagement event at Liskeard Community Hospital on 30th November 18. The Healthy Relationships Programme has been delivered in Liskeard Secondary School and the group will be utilising some of the OPCC funding to purchase mobile phones and personal attack alarms for Domestic Abuse victims in the town.  These crime prevention/safety resources will be managed by the IDVA locally.
  • The Safer Liskeard team have identified Castle Park as an area for environmental improvement activity and have conducted a site visit to the area. This activity aims to promote residents taking pride in their town whilst improving feelings of safety and will complement the soon to be reformed ‘Friends of Castle Park’ group.  The work will include targeted multi-agency outreach; consultation with residents; fundraising for play equipment; organised activities in the park; a link to the Time Credits project and CRC unpaid work involvement in remedial work in the park.

Cornwall’s 2018 festive alcohol safety messaging …

February 6th, 2019 by

Over Christmas and New Year, a series of alcohol responsibility messages went out under the hashtags #CornwallChristmas and #CornwallPartyTime

These were all based on messages in the campaign webpage “Party Time”.

The themes covered were the lack of a December Drinking Superpower, having a Safe Night Out, Drink Driving facts, precautions against spiking for customers and Bars, walking away from trouble rather than becoming an imaginary drunk UN, all promoted under the long running Safer Cornwall message of ‘What Will Your Drink Cost?’


The messages were picked up on the Alcohol Strategy Facebook and Twitter feeds, as well as the Cornwall Council and Public Health social media.

The most widely read posts were this drink driving Facebook message, this ‘Walk Away‘ Twitter post, and this Spiking message.

The spiking messages also picked up a lot of views on the Cornwall Council Social Media.

Overall, the messages reached a total of about 40,000 hits, highlighted the issues people are most concerned about, and have given us pointers for this year’s messages.

Infection Control for Injecting Drug Users January 2019

January 24th, 2019 by

PHE and Health Protection, Cornwall and Plymouth have issued the following notice:-

  • During 2018, we have received reports of invasive injection site infections from across the South West.  This has included an outbreak of iGAS and most recently two cases of rare Fusobacterium gonidiaformans.
  • Once individuals become infected their health can rapidly deteriorate particularly within the most vulnerable segments of this population, where the consequences can be life-threatening.
  • It is imperative that anyone working with injecting drug users delivers the full range of harm reduction information and advice  – particularly around the risks of injecting site infections.
  • Some drug users lick their needles after injecting believing that this sterilises. This increases risk, due to germs we all carry in the mouth that once they enter the bloodstream of injectors, become a new threat. Please reiterate that this is not a safe practice.
  • Encourage and facilitate users with signs of infection (attached) to get prompt medical attention.
  • Needle Exchange remains a critical component of the care pathway, and is an evidence based intervention supported by NICE and the UK clinical guidelines for substance misuse. Please do everything you can to support people to be aware of the risks of sharing or reusing equipment and to use new equipment every time.

Award Winning Mind & Body

November 8th, 2018 by

The Self Harm prevention programme ‘Mind and Body’, delivered by Addaction Young Peoples’ team, YZUP, has won the Innovation in CYPMH at the National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards .

MAB was shortlisted for the award and then was competing against Hampshire CAMHS – New Forest Team. –  Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and The Emotionally Healthy Schools (EHS) Programme –  Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

 

Winning this award will give MAB even more publicity and enable it to be showcased to other areas – hopefully resulting in  more YP who are experiencing Self Harm receiving early intervention.

The Mind and Body programme, commissioned by NHS Kernow and delivered by professionals from substance misuse and mental health charity Addaction, has won the Innovation in Children and Young People’s Mental Health award at the National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards.

Vivien Hughes, Addaction manager from the Young Person’s Substance Misuse Service (YZUP), said: “We were delighted to be shortlisted in this category and we were up against two NHS trusts who had also been nominated, so a very competitive category. When they read out our name we were blown away. Of course we are immensely proud.”

This latest award makes it a hat trick of wins for the Mind and Body programme as last year we also won two other national awards from the Royal Society for Public Health, winning the Public Mental Health and Wellbeing Award as well as the overall Public Health Minister’s Award for our work around adolescent self-harm. The awards are great recognition for our staff and have strengthened our resolve to expand delivery so we can reach more people.

“Our most recent award also contributes to the overall recognition of the quality of the service, the importance of young people having access to early mental health intervention but also the achievement of staff and the talented people working within the service.”

The programme was first designed and delivered by Addaction Young People services in Kent, before funding was obtained through NHS England to enable it to be offered in Cornwall.

Last year, NHS Kernow agreed to provide funding to deliver the programme to run in community settings so that it could be offered right across the county.

“NHS Kernow can see the very real value of this type of early intervention. Evaluation of the programme has demonstrated a reduction in self-harming thoughts and action and also highlighted the benefits gained including improved emotional wellbeing, communication and engagement at school.”

Young people are referred into the programme, complete an assessment, and then are offered a series of interactive group sessions and one-to-ones that encourage open discussion about mental health and related issues.

These groups are a safe place to talk about topics that are often stigmatised. Young people are able to explore thoughts and actions in relation to self-harm, looking at why risks are taken and how to reduce them, and help develop communication, self-expression and assertiveness skills. It aims to provide students with strategies to reduce their risk-taking behaviour, improve their emotional wellbeing, and build life-long emotional resilience strategies.

A student from Cornwall, who is referred to only as Adam to protect his identity, said about the service:

“The programme gives me a way of expressing how I feel, to talk about mental health and say ‘I’m not ok’ and know others struggle too.”

The ceremony was held at Liverpool football club

YZUP are our commissioned young peoples’ service, delivering education, prevention and treatment services for young people across Cornwall & Isles of Scilly.

Partnership Plan consultation

November 8th, 2018 by

Safer Cornwall’s new three year Partnership Plan is now open for consultation and this is your opportunity to tell us what you think about it.

The consultation is open to all. You will find a copy of the Plan on the Safer Cornwall website www.safercornwall.co.uk/surveys with a short on-line survey for sending us your comments. The consultation closes on 13 December 2018.

We are inviting you to read the plan and let us know what you like about it, what you don’t like and if you’d like to see any changes. We will then use all of this feedback to shape the final plan, which will be published in March 2019.

A lot has changed over the last three years and our new Plan must meet the challenges of a changing delivery landscape and risk profile for community safety.

Devon and Cornwall Police, along with other forces across England and Wales, is recording much higher levels of crimes than in previous years and the profile of crime is changing. Domestic abuse and sexual violence, exploitation and cyber-crime are increasingly taking the place of traditional crime prevention and enforcement and these issues are more complex, more resource intensive and require longer term responses to resolve.

This places a strong focus on partners working more effectively together to manage risk and vulnerability, against a backdrop of pressures on budgets and resources across many areas of the public sector. There are opportunities to explore a more efficient, more joined up approach and move more resources into prevention and early intervention.

Drawing on a robust evidence base, the Plan identifies the community safety issues that most impact on the safety, health and wellbeing of Cornwall’s residents and visitors and sets out what we intend to do to tackle these issues effectively and achieve safer, more healthy and more resilient communities.

If you have any queries or require information in a different format please contact us by email mail@safercornwall.co.uk or contact Cornwall Council on 0300 1234 100.

Printed copies of the Plan and the survey will be provided through Information Services and Libraries. We will also be holding some targeted sessions with service user and community groups.
