Description

The manual sets out a model of how to use safety as a public good to develop human potential and improve the Quality of Life (QoL) of communities towards Sustainable Neighbourhoods (SN) in low-income areas. It is aimed to be of assistance to Government at all levels—National, Provincial and Local—to Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), Community Based Organisations (CBOs) and any other agencies or individuals engaged in the process of human development on area-based approaches.

It is based on an understanding of best practices, gained from recent literature and from direct experience internationally, as well as from the rich practical experience of the VPUU programme in Cape Town.
