Collaborative problem solving for community safety


This week the key learning points have been about how to gain insights by gathering and making sense of information about the community you work and/or live in. If you have particular responsibilities of care or safety in that community it is essential you gain this understanding, and that you work to maintain it and periodically review and reflect on changes which are happening. But these things cannot be done in isolation. You will need to work closely with other colleagues, community members and partner service providers in order to develop a common understanding of the key issues and how they might be addressed.

Next week you will begin to look at how you can develop the communication and relationship-building skills needed to make this work effective.
