‘Fair rules’ agenda for communities – Thursday 4 December 2008

A ‘fair rules’ agenda has been set, outlining a wide range of policy initiatives designed to support strong communities.

The “Fair Rules for Strong Communities” strategy sets out a comprehensive series of reforms covering welfare reform, crime and policing, children and young people, business rules, immigration and communities, which are designed to bring people together and help steer the country through the global economic downturn.

The strategy sets out over fifty measures to strengthen the rules that tie communities together, strengthen enforcement, and provide for clearer consequences for rule-breakers. Major steps being taken by Government to promote and maintain fair rules in key areas include steps to support people who do the right thing, including a £5m Community Crime Fighters programme to train 3,600 members of the public who are already active in their communities and want to do more to make them safer.
