Community Safety Month is held in October each year and aims to reduce the risk of violence, emergencies and injuries in the community.

Health and safety comes in many forms, including building personal resilience and our community’s health and wellbeing.

To celebrate Community Safety Month, we’re working with Victoria Police, external agencies and the wider community to continue to create safe neighbourhoods for local residents to feel protected and empowered.

Community Safety Month events

City of Boroondara’s Community Safety Month will host online safety events that highlight how we can work together to keep our community safe.

Happy Sad Man online screening

We are hosting a free virtual screening of Happy Sad Man to change the dialogue around masculinity and mental health. This uplifting documentary looks at a diverse and positive portrayal of five men’s mental health experiences, including a farmer, war photographer, surfer, musician and artist.
