TDC Conservative Group welcomes continued success of Margate Task Force

At the last meeting of Thanet District Council, Inspector Mark Pearson of the Margate Task Force (MTF) gave a presentation updating the council on the team’s work and ongoing success.
Conservative Group Leader, Cllr Bob Bayford welcomed the presentation and the awards won by the team, including the prestigious Partnership and Innovation Award at the Kent Community Safety Awards.

The Margate Task force is a multi-agency team comprising 14 agencies and over 30 staff, all of them co-located at Thanet District Council.  It was formed to bring responsive, collaborative working to target the high concentration of vulnerable and at risk individuals and families in the Margate and Cliftonville areas.  The team has reduced crime, and significantly improved joint ‘street level’ engagement, generating improved and more responsive service delivery in line with the specific needs of the local community

Cllr Bayford said: “The creation of the Margate Task Force is one of the Conservative administration’s finest achievements and I am pleased that it continues to make such an important contribution to our community, bringing together many agencies to tackle crime and to help the most vulnerable in the area. “
