Lincolnshire Event Safety Partnership

Lincolnshire Event Safety Partnership (LESP) offers advice to local Safety Advisory Groups (SAGs).

This helps them to provide guidance to event organisers.

LESP can:

  • provide a forum of strategic advice 
  • gather intelligence and share best practice
  • provide consistent and proportionate advice and guidance 
  • support local SAGs and encourage a positive culture of event safety
  • provide training for event organisers, safety advisory group members and other bodies
  • positively engage with regulatory and enforcement bodies
  • consider relevant legislation and approved codes of practice applicable to the event industry
  • compile and maintain a database of events in Lincolnshire
  • maintain and develop links with anyone associated with the event industry

SAGs are made up of officers from the local councils, emergency services, other relevant bodies and the event organiser.

If you are planning a large event, you can contact your local SAG for guidance on keeping the public safe whilst attending. 

To contact your local SAG visit the local district council website.
