Becoming a Safe Community

The process to becoming an Accredited Safe Community is a collaborative one, in which PPSCN offer guidance and support – we want everyone to live in a safe community.

You will be assigned a contact person within the PPSCN, from your country who will help you adopt the Safe Community model and assist you throughout the whole process. Your application must demonstrate how you apply the following principles:

  1. Leadership and collaboration focusing on improving safety,
  2. The reach of the programmes,
  3. The safety issues concerning the most vulnerable,
  4. Analysis of current safety data with action plans on improvement,
  5. How the evaluation of the programmes will be conducted, and finally
  6. How the safety initiatives will be communicated and networked throughout the community.

Your contact person will offer feedback on your initial application, including opportunities for improvement and areas you may need to consider. The team of reviewers will review your final application. A certifying officer will visit your community to witness the community safety efforts. A congratulatory ceremony will be conducted because this is great reason for celebration – keeping all citizens safe in your community.

Any questions about the application or the process, please just contact us.
