Community safety

A range of complex factors influence how safe individuals feel within their community. Improving the safety and liveability of communities is a shared responsibility of all levels of government and of all community members. 

We help councils build safer and healthier communities by facilitating information and resource sharing activities, strengthening partnerships with other agencies, and advocating for program and policy initiatives in the areas of alcohol, drugs and gambling.

Through our Local Government Alcohol and Other Drugs Issues Forum, we work with councils to help minimise and prevent drug and alcohol-related harms within the community.
