The Safe Communities Foundation New Zealand (SCFNZ) works collaboratively with other key stakeholders to further support the development of community safety - injury/crime prevention, reducing alcohol related harm and safety promotion. It provides an opportunity for all relevant stakeholders to increase action on community safety. As part of this process the SCFNZ will be assisting communities to consider working toward accreditation as either an International Safe Community of the WHO Safe Community Network, or a Pacific Safe Community.
Please note the WHO CCCSP had indicated that from 1 March 2012 the new ISC application forms and guidelines are compulsory for both new ISC applications and redesignation applications.
SCFNZ anticipates these changes and is in the process of updating all relevant resources to align with these changes.
