Aberdeen Safer Community Trust began in 1997, taking over from the local authority funded Safer Cities Project. At the heart of the Trust, the Safer Cities Project's three aims remain:
- The reduction of crime.
- The lessening of the fear of crime.
- The creation of a safer environment where economic enterprise and the community could flourish.
Aberdeen Safer Trust promotes a partnership approach to community safety issues which they believe is essential in tackling community needs successfully.
They dedicate themselves to helping community groups across the whole of Aberdeen to turn their community safety ideas into action. Whether you want to start a neighbourhood watch, start a youth diversion project, provide safety items or advice to vulnerable people in your area, or campaign on risk awareness, Aberdeen Safer Trust is here to help and offer advice, as well as provide funding for your idea.
Working closely with the Police, Fire Service and local authority the Trust is involved in many joint safety efforts. From the Aberdeen Community Safety Partnership to the Grampian Neighbourhood Watch Association, if they can help, they get involved.
