The Community Platform is a network of Social Inclusion organisations in South Dublin. Some of our member organisations work in the area of environment and in particular community safety. The SDCP is working to ensure that communities are supported to actively participate both in local community safety initiatives and the community infrastructure in the county.
In June 2011, we hosted a community safety seminar with a view to promoting the community safety infrastructure in the county to a wide range of actors including community garda, county councillors, community workers, youth workers, local residents, community drug teams and community platform and community forum members.
The aim of this seminar was to promote the existing community safety infrastructure in the county to those working on the ground and identify ways of increasing participation in those structures especially from marginalised groups. We also aimed to identify ways of making the existing infrastructure more effective and identify new and emerging issues in the county with a view to influencing the work of the Joint Policing Committee and The Local Policing Fora.
