#SaferCommunities W71CT Campaign

#SaferCommunities W71CT Campaign

Implementing a holistic, integrated approach to social crime prevention in W71CT

Our #SaferCommunities Campaign focuses on the social
and economic conditions that contribute to violent and
criminal behaviour. Through the #SaferCommunities Campaign,
we are able to alleviate some of the social, economic and
environmental factors conducive to particular types of crime.
Campaign Overview The #SaferCommunities projects are able
to address safety issues, whilst uplifting Beneficiary Partners, who
earn food and/or Xchange Points for assisting with the projects.

Focus Areas

The #SaferCommunities W71CT Campaign focus areas include:

  • Research into social crime prevention
  • Partnership with SOUL to develop the foodXchange Program
  • Infrastructure for projects that reduce the social, economic
    and environmental factors conducive to particular types of crime.
  • Advocacy to promote awareness of the role each of us can, and
    should, play in creating safer communities 

Key Risks

Lack of Business and Residence Partner support: the #SaferCommunities Campaign is dependent on funding, sponsorship and donations from business and residence partners

  • Lack of organisational Partner buy-in: the success of the #SaferCommunities Campaign is dependent on non-profits, local government and community organisation support
