On Wednesday 30th March, SCSN hosted the online webinar ‘Collaborating with People’.  The event was an opportunity to learn more about ways to enhance and increase community engagement when working within the field of community safety. Over 15 people attended on an online Teams event, all of whom were professionals working across Community Safety Partnerships in Scotland.

The event was in in response to various research that indicates an increased need and importance for community safety practitioners to continue to engage with their local communities on a range of issues. Community safety practitioners themselves have also highlighted the importance of having the skills and resources in the area of citizen participation and community engagement. In addition, following the previous SCSN participation webinar, feedback suggested a need for more practical resources and events, using real life scenarios within the area of community engagement and community safety.
