Residents at Wyndham are invited to share their thoughts on issues affecting community safety at workshops being held across the city in July.
The Community Safety Conversations workshops aim to make the most of strengths that exist locally and the willingness of residents and organizations to come together to address issues regarding crime and safety, to collaboratively build a stronger community.
Feedback from the workshops will influence community safety projects that will be delivered as part of the state government funded and Wyndham council led, Empowering Communities initiative.
Wyndham council’s community safety portfolio holder Cr Susan McIntyre said community safety can mean different things to everyone.
“Community safety is about helping communities to be and feel safe. It is important that we all feel safe where we live, work or spend our leisure time, ”she said.
“We want to hear what you think. What will make a difference to you feeling safe?
“We are such a wonderfully diverse community and given our demographics we want to hear from all sections of it, getting involved will help create a stronger and safer Wyndham,” Cr McIntyre said.
Community members who attend a session will receive a $ 20 voucher for participating and meals will be provided.
