The Far North Safer Community Council (FNSCC) has been operating in the Far North for over 24 years and started as a pilot initiative with the Crime Prevention Unit (CPU) of the Ministry of Justice. The original focus was crime prevention, but it has evolved into a wider and more holistic approach to the social and economic well-being of the community through ‘Collective Impact’.
‘Collective Impact’ is a framework to tackle deeply entrenched and complex social problems. It is an innovative and structured approach to making collaboration work across government, business, philanthropy, non-profit organisations and citizens to achieve significant and lasting social change.
FNSCC has adopted the broader vision of “Building Safer Communities” and has evolved into a hybrid Social Enterprise Service Provider.
Our main focus is to continue to tackle the increasingly complex social problems we face as a society.
Our approach calls for multiple organisations and entities from different sectors to forge an alliance creating a common agenda for shared outcomes and alignment of effort.
