Who we are

The Nottingham Crime & Drug Partnership was set up in 2005, with the overall aim of reducing the harm and misuse of drugs and alcohol, and tackling crime. More details can be found on the Partnership board

We’re a multi-agency partnership established to address these issues through the formation of strategies and the commissioning of services, and operationally through their implementation.

We’re a team of around 15 people, representing all our partners and we’re split up into three specific areas:

  • Policy, performance & insight
  • Community safety
  • Commissioning & finance

We’re based in central Nottingham, in the Central Police Station and Loxley House.  Email us at cdp@nottinghamcity.gov.uk.
