2021 Community Safety Month

6 Oct 2021
Healthy Community

Community Safety Month is held every October and reminds us that we all have a role to play in keeping our community safe.

Whilst COVID-19 restrictions have prevented face to face activities, Manningham Council and safety partners have developed online content to share throughout the month.

Everyone in Manningham should feel and be safe in their homes or when out in our community.

Whilst Manningham continues to be one of the safest municipalities in metropolitan Melbourne, we acknowledge people may not feel safe due to other issues impacting their wellbeing.

You can report a non-urgent crime, including COVID-19 breaches by calling the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.

Please call 000 for police, ambulance and fire services if you need urgent help.

You can watch this video from our local Victoria Police Crime Prevention Officer Carla Reardon to learn some important tips for staying safe in the home and while you are out and about.

Issues such as family violence, drugs and alcohol, gambling, mental health and homelessness can impact anyone, at any time in their lives, and these issues can often be linked. It’s important to note that while some of these issues can be a contributing factor to family violence, it is not the cause. There is no excuse for any type of violence.

We have developed the Manningham Wellbeing Support Card. The card includes key contacts for family violence, drugs and alcohol, gambling, mental health and homelessness support services. Find out more about our Wellbeing Support Card.
