Does your organisation work around improving safety within communities in Cardiff?

Are you a volunteer or paid worker managing, supporting or providing activities based around community safety? If you've answered 'yes' to any of the above, then membership of the Cardiff Safer Communities Network is for you.

The Network meets quarterly and is packed with information, guidance, and discussions identified by the members. It's also a fantastic opportunity to meet to:

•    Share and learn information and good practice;
•    Learn new skills and knowledge via guest speakers, workshops and networking activities;
•    Meet with others in a similar role to compare experiences and encourage one another.

Membership is free.
