Truro BID

Truro Safe

Truro BID are a key partner in the Truro Safe scheme. Formed in 2013, the Truro Safe Partnership was set up to respond to the need to improve safety in the day and  evening and at night time within the city.   Truro Safe aims to tackle day time and anti social behaviour, as well as drinking perceptions.

The Partnership is made up of licensed traders, taxi operators, the Police, Truro City Council, Cornwall Council, Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety (CFRCS) Service, Safer Cornwall, Truro BID and the Saturday night support agencies; Truro Street Pastors and the Street Marshals (at seasonal times).

Funding currently comes from a number of sources including the Cornwall Community Foundation, Cornwall Councillors grants, Truro City Council and Truro BID.

The wider Truro Safe partnership meets regularly throughout the year to review activities, plan resources for busy times of year such as Christmas and New Year and consider other matters in the City.

For more details see the Truro Safe webpages on Safer Cornwall.

Different issues, the same streets campaign

We have produced an information leaflet, aimed at local businesses, residents and visitors, which sets out some of the key issues related to street drinking, begging and rough sleeping in Truro.

It gives details of the organisations that are providing support, and contacts if people have any local concerns and how people can help.

The leaflet was coordinated by Cornwall Council’s Localism Team and produced on behalf of Truro Safe and has been funded by the BID.

If you would like some leaflets for your business, please call the BID team on 01872 273999

The BID have also implemented a donation box scheme, allowing a facility for those who wish to donate to the cause a function whereby the funds are directly positively helping those who need it.

Donation boxes are located in: Co-Op, Quintessential, Waterstones, Wetherspoons, Tesco, Superdry, Warrens (High Cross), Natwest bank, Sole Plaice Fish & Chip shop and CeX Truro. If your business would like to host a donation box, then please email Sian.  Have a
