The issue of campaign development has been the subject of many conversations over many years. We have made some progress but there is still a lot more to do.

The campaigns work stream will focus its work on two areas:

  • At a senior / strategic level working to influence campaign planning with CFOA and DCLG (amongst others) and working towards a common understanding and approach to how to best use resources and influence locally and nationally to bring about the behaviour changes we need to see incidents, deaths and injuries reducing.
  • At an operational / tactical level working to develop resources, ideas and activities locally, regionally and nationally to take advantage of the creativity that exists across the FRS network, encourage and facilitate better sharing of materials, campaigns etc. to reduce silo working and help realise cost savings.

We have started by looking at how we develop the ideas generated at last year’s conference into a co-ordinated work plan and are also looking at how we can start to have more influence strategically with CFOA.

Volunteers for this work stream so far are:

Philip Gillingham – Staffordshire FRS
Tim Bevington – Cheshire FRS
Sian Corrigan – Cheshire FRS
David Barlow - Hertfordshire FRS
James Bladon - Avon FRS
Leanne Ehren - Cambridgeshire FRS
Hayley Douglas - Cambridgeshire FRS
Catherine Bellamy – Nottinghamshire FRS
Tom Embury – CFOA
Rebecca Wallis - CFOA
