The Objects of SCAF are:

1.       To promote the benefit of the parish of Shirehampton and the neighbourhood without distinction of sex, or of political, religious or other opinions by associating the local authorities, voluntary organisations and inhabitants in a common effort to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure-time occupations with the object of improving the conditions of life for the said inhabitants. 

2.       The promotion of public safety and prevention of crime 

3.       The preservation and protection of health

These objects were revised at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 7 August 2003.

The Aims of the Forum were established at the initial meeting, and are:

To discuss the issues in the Community Profile, and come to a consensus of opinion as to the priorities.
To develop a strategic and multi agency approach to address the priority issues.
To establish links and support the work of other local initiatives. To establish a working structure with regular meetings.
Establish good communication between Forum members.
To establish sub groups or working groups to address specific issues e.g. housing, lack of youth activities etc.
To be inclusive and fully representative of all sections of the Shirehampton Community.
To be open to, and consult the residents of Shirehampton.

The Youth Support, Community Safety and Shirehampton Greens Groups will continue in the forthcoming year. The Housing Group will continue to arrange regular drop-in sessions which bring together representatives of BCC Area Housing Office, housing associations, the police, and local councillors.
