Safety Network Workshops

Social Planning Toronto is working in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Community Safety and Wellbeing Unit and the Community Crisis Response Program (CCRP) on the Safety Network Development Pilot. Our role is to strengthen CCRP-supported safety networks across Toronto so they can support residents and community members impacted by violence and trauma.

This city-wide virtual training series will be hosted during the summer and fall of 2021 and is open to residents and agencies who participate in local safety networks and committees supported by the City of Toronto.
