Operation Unite

Operation Unite 

Operation Unite is working to reduce arson and anti-social behaviour in and around Daventry town centre. It is run as a partnership that includes West Northamptonshire Council, Fire & Rescue, Northamptonshire Police, Daventry Town Council and Neighbourhood Watch.

The aims are to:

  • Reduce anti-social behaviour 
  • Reduce fire setting 
  • Create a safer environment 
  • Reduce waste issues and fly-tipping 
  • Educate local business about fire safety 
  • Offer free fire protection advice.


Events that the partners have organised include a town centre survey to gain feedback on issues affecting the area, a day of action on the Southbrook estate to share fire prevention and community safety advice with residents and two Emergency Services Fun Days at Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village.

As well as supporting community projects like Operation Unite, the Fire and Rescue Arson Task Force also works with young people who are playing with fire. If you have concerns about a child or young person playing with fire please contact the team on 01604 797 160 or email  arsontaskforce@northantsfire.org.uk

Anyone with information about any incidents of deliberate fire setting is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

It is vital that if you see waste illegally dumped or being deposited, especially if it is a fire hazard, to report it to the council.

Alternatively you can phone the Council on 01327 871100.

Share and Care

West Northamptonshire Council and Daventry Police welcome donations all year round to help support vulnerable families or families living in refuge.

Donations can include toiletries, children's toys and art supplies, non-perishable foods and second hand clothes.

Donations can be handed to reception at the Daventry offices of West Northamptonshire Council or Daventry Police Station. Please contact communitysafety.ddc@westnorthants.gov.uk for more information

The Comfort & Joy campaign is held in the run up to Christmas every year and asks for donations of essential items such as food and toiletries but also for gifts for men, women and children that they can open on Christmas day.

Op Unite Fun Days

We have organised two Fun Days so far, both of which were held at the Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village.  

They are a great way for people to find out about the work of the Emergency Services in the county as well as for us to find out what issues are important to local people.  

In addition to this many other organisations have supported the Days by providing fun activities for children and advice on their services to adults. Information about the next Fun Day will be posted here when available.
