Communities and Justice Programme

The Safer South Africa Foundation (SSAF) in its quest to mobilise under-resourced communities to build awareness and ability to work together in the ‘fight against crime;’ hosts a safety debate programme. The programme is organised by the SSAF in partnership with various stakeholders, including government bodies, at local, provincial and national levels. The Communities and Justice Programme is a flagship of the Safer South Africa Foundation (SSAF), initiated in 2012. It is a community-based programme aimed at strengthening partnerships in crime prevention.

As crime changes its face, collectively, we need to find new crime fighting strategies and solutions to empower and mobilise communities.
