Knox is a safe place to live, work and visit – but together we can further improve safety for everyone.

The 'Knox Empowering Communities' project aims to support community designed and delivered projects that address causes of crime and perceptions of safety.

As locals, you know your local issues and what solutions could work to address community crime and safety. We recently asked you for your input to help the Empowering Communities Action Group design a grants program that is now available for community groups and organisations to apply for funding.

A community engagement summary is now available via the link below.

For more information on the grants program or how to apply for funding please visit the project's website.
