Safer Whanganui

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Safer Whanganui – works for everyone, a positive place to liv​e, learn, work and play​

Our community was awarded International Safe Community status by the World Health Organisation in 2010.  Our status was made possible by an outstanding collaboration of community partners, agencies and organisations focused around a common goal.

In May 2016 we applied for reaccreditation and await the outcome of our application. The reaccreditation application provides a snapshot of progress since accreditation and highlights achievements and successful initiatives.​
