Phase 2 aim **PAGE UNDER FULL REVIEW**
The aim of Phase 2 is to reduce unintentional physical and psychological harm that could have been predicted or prevented. The precise amount of reduction is currently being scoped.
Phase 2 is being led by our Board member David McGown, Assistant Chief Officer, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS). The work of this phase is organised into four strands: home safety, data and intelligence, road safety and outdoor and water safety.
Progress so far
A stakeholder scoping workshop was held on 28 August 2014 to help define the scope of the work. The first steering group meeting was held on 23 September 2014 and the Building Safer Communities Programme Board approved the governance and delivery arrangements at their seventh meeting on 4 November 2014. A second steering group meeting was held on 13 January 2015.
On 14 April 2015, Hannah Dickson joined the team on secondment from the Scottish Community Safety Network. Hannah is a Principal Analysts and will be developing a strategic assessment for Phase 2 of the Building Safer Communities Programme. This will recommend, through robust analysis, environmental scanning and risk assessment, areas of focus and priority for Phase 2. It will also help to further define the scope of the Phase 2 stretch aim.
A meeting of the Phase 2 theme champions was held on 26 May 2015 in Edinburgh and the Phase 2 Steering Group last met on 22 June 2015.
