We work in partnership to make communities safer, support victims of crime and create opportunities to change people’s lives for the better.
Friends Against Scams
Safer Communties is an official partner in the delivery of Friends Against Scams awareness sessions. We educate people how they can learn about the different types of scams and how to spot and support themselves and others. With increased knowledge and awareness, people can make scams part of everyday conversation with their family, friends and neighbours, which will enable them to protect themselves and others.
SARC North East
SARC North East – provided a 24/7 service at four centres across the region in Teesside, Durham, Sunderland and Newcastle, to anyone who had experienced sexual violence and/or sexual abuse. Our specialist staff provided support following recent and non-recent sexual assault, providing adice to both patients and police and provided acute forensic examination.
Community Peer Mentors
Community Peer Mentors are motivated and enthusiastic volunteers from the local community who support vulnerable, isolated people affected by significant life-changing events, whether they are victims, survivors, perpetrators, or those who’ve fallen through the cracks in society. Safer Communities delivered the programme across Durham and Darlington on behalf of the Police Crime and Commissioner from 2015 to 2020.
We provide services and programmes dedicated to making communities safer.
Our aim is to be a centre of excellence in community safety, and we are dedicated to improving the lives and wellbeing of people in our community. We pride ourselves on providing high quality support, interventions and programmes that deliver significant and life changing difference for people who engage in our services.
