The Bendigo Safe Community Forum aims to promote and improve safety in our community.

The role of the forum is to advocate, advise, refer and act on matters identified as priority areas in the Greater Bendigo Community Safety Strategic Plan. 

The creation and maintenance of safe communities is a shared responsibility. Forum members include government, non-government and community organisations including the City of Greater Bendigo, Community Health Services, Department of Human Services, Victoria Police, businesses, youth support and advocacy, family violence and community welfare groups. The forum currently meets on a quarterly basis and membership is by invitation only.
