Serious and Organised Crime Community Coordinator project - survey

Serious and Organised Crime Community Coordinator project – survey

The University of Hull is currently involved in undertaking an evaluation of the Serious Organised Crime Community Coordinator (SOC CC) project in Grimsby and Hull.  They are looking to provide an understanding of the outcomes, benefits and efficiencies of the SOC CC role and will be particularly focusing upon the impact of SOC on communities and the protection of the most vulnerable members of society from criminal exploitation.

If you or your colleagues have had any experience with the SOC CC, they’d be very grateful if you could complete the survey included below. They are specifically interested in hearing from stakeholder groups working in East Marsh, South Marsh and West Marsh (Grimsby) and Orchard Park estate (Hull).

Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey

Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey

Share your knowledge about our unique marine and coastal environment

You are invited to take part in the 2021 Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey Identifying environmental priorities, highlighting information gaps, and sharing knowledge with the Yorkshire Marine Nature Partnership.

Despite the challenges of 2020, significant progress was made in establishing the Yorkshire Marine Nature Partnership. Whilst they can’t yet meet face to face, throughout 2021, they’ll be continuing to build on the foundations that they’ve created and exploring how the partnership can support, facilitate and enhance more collaboration across Yorkshire’s incredible marine and coastal environment.

A key element of the Development Project is finding out where the strengths are along the Yorkshire coast, where knowledge might need to be improved, and who they can connect with to make long-lasting progress.

So, they’re kicking off the new year with the launch of the Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey, which they would like you to get involved with.

Follow the link to tell them what your environmental priorities are, where you think new projects could build their understanding and how your expertise and skills could support us.  You’ll also be able to share information via a live mapping portal, which will help to build a more complete picture of activities, initiatives and knowledge gaps, across Yorkshire’s marine and coastal environment.

Independent Human Rights Act Review: Call for Evidence

Independent Human Rights Act Review: Call for Evidence

Deadline 31st March

The Human Rights Act (HRA) has been in force for 20 years, it is timely to undertake a review into its operation. The UK’s constitutional framework has always evolved incrementally over time, and it will continue evolving. The Government need to make sure that the human rights framework, as with the rest of their legal framework, develops and is refined to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the society it serves. They are committed to remaining a signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights.

The government is establishing an independent review to examine the framework of the HRA, how it is operating in practice and whether any change is required. Specifically, the review will look at two key themes, which are outlined in the Terms of Reference (ToR) as follows:

  • the relationship between domestic courts and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR)
  • the impact of the HRA on the relationship between the judiciary, the executive and the legislature

The Review has now launched a public Call for Evidence. Details on how to submit a response can be found in the linked document. The Call for Evidence closes on the 3 March 2021.
