Workshops to build a safer Wyndham
Wyndham residents are invited to share their thoughts on issues affecting community safety at workshops held across the city in July.
Community Safety Conversation Workshops aim to make the most of the strengths that exist locally and the willingness of residents and organizations to come together to address crime and safety issues, in order to collaboratively build a stronger community.
Feedback from the workshops will influence community safety projects that will be implemented as part of the Empowering Communities initiative, funded by the state government and led by Wyndham Council.
Wyndham Council Community Safety Portfolio Holder Cr Susan McIntyre said community safety can mean different things to everyone.
“Community safety is about helping communities 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,” said Cr McIntyre.
Community members who attend a session will receive a $20 voucher for their attendance and meals will be provided.
