CSSC – An accurate, timely and authoritative national initiative
These are the key adjectives that describe the safety and security information provided free of charge by the CSSC Project in a partnership for a safer city.
CSSC Project becomes a charity
Since its inception CSSC has been run as a not for profit organisation, but has relied heavily on charitable donations for its running costs and administration expenditure. Application for the CSSC project to be registered as a charity has now been successful and it was officially granted charity status on 11th September.
The charity will be officially launched at a celebration dinner to be held at the Grange City Hotel on Tuesday 15th October. Sir David Wootton, last year’s Lord Mayor of London and Chair of the Trustees, will host the event. James Brokenshire MP, the Minister for Security at the Home Office and one of the founders of CSSC, will be the guest speaker.
Industry Sector Leader
The Industry Sector Leader (ISL) role is fundamental to the CSSC concept and structure. Each business sector is now represented by one or more ISLs who are able to cascade safety and security messages, represent their specific industry sector or member organisation and act as a conduit with the CSSC hub.
The CSSC project currently has over 190 ISLs and deputies spread over 29 business sectors, who cascade information through their various business links, trade organisations and contacts. The potential reach for CSSC messaging is nearly 8 million people throughout the nation.
The CSSC has developed a monthly Business Bulletin which features advice and guidance documents. The fourth edition addressed the subjects of ‘Know your Banknotes’ and ‘Travel Safety’.
Previous editions included timely advice about: Planning for Heatwave; Cyber crime top tips; IT & Network Resilience; and The Business Case for Sprinkler Systems. The bulletins also display a useful diary of forthcoming events.
