About Victorian Safe Communities Network

The Victorian Safe Communities Network (VSCN) was established to give community safety professionals a forum for support and learning when Victoria’s first two municipalities were designated as World Health Organisation Safe Communities in 1996.

The VSCN’s role is to support government, business and community to promote safety strategies which aim to minimise the impact of unintentional injury, crime, violence and emergency situations for all Victorians.

The network approaches community safety within the guiding principles of healthy public policy, community participation and intersectoral collaboration.

An eight member elected Executive Committee supported by a Secretariat manages the VSCN.
