A sense of safety can be affected by how we perceive and feel about a place. It is also affected by what we see happen in the place.

We work with partners across different sectors to address issues that impact on our health and sense of safety. We focus on family violence, and alcohol and other drug use.

Council also has a legislative responsibility under the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 to prepare a Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan every four years.
