The SAFEStreets project is a partnership with the fOrT Youth Centre and aims to create a place-based community education campaign that is designed by young people living in the City of Greater Geelong for young people.
The project was established in March 2020 to work with young people and key local stakeholders to co-design an education and awareness campaign aimed at improving their understanding of the Victorian justice system and their legal rights and responsibilities.
A key focus of the project is establishing consistent messaging around key legal topics and developing creative and engaging community safety education resources that can be used across the region.
SAFEStreets established a reference group which oversaw the project planning and implementation and included representatives from the City of Greater Geelong’s fOrT Youth Centre, Victoria Legal Aid, Barwon Adolescent TaskForce, Barwon Child Youth and Family and Victoria Police.
We would like to acknowledge the support of the Department of Justice and Community Safety who have funded this project as part of their Community Safety Fund.
