Not an accredited safe community?

Accreditation Process

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

You will be assigned a contact person within the SCFNZ 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 driving and sustaining positive local change to achieve their aspirations,
  2. Analysis of current community concerns with a focus on wellbeing, resilience, inclusion and safety
  3. Action plans on improvement looking at the reach and effectiveness of the programmes, including the issues concerning the most vulnerable, and finally
  4. How these wellbeing and resilience initiatives will be communicated and networked throughout the community.
