Unintentional Injury Learning Event

As part of Building Safer Communities, we’re hosting a learning event for managers and practitioners responsible for local delivery to share approaches and examples of preventing unintentional harm and injury within homes and communities across Scotland – anything from home safety to outdoor and water safety. The event will bring together colleagues from community safety, public health, community empowerment and partners to discuss how we are, and can, collectively engage to build safer communities and reduce unintentional harm and injury.

We invite you to join the discussion with speakers including Paul Gray (Chief Executive of NHS Scotland), Davie McGown (Assistant Chief Officer, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service) and Gillian Russell (Director of Safer Communities, Scottish Government) who will share their own stories and reflections. But, the event will be structured around what matters to you at a local level. Would you like to discuss partnership working? How to better measure and demonstrate progress? How to involve and empower communities? Get in touch

(elinor.findlay@gov.scot or lorraine.gillies@scsn.org.uk) and tell us about the key issues affecting practice and delivery in your area.
