Amelia van Rhyn – Practitioners

My motivation to join SaferSpaces:

I  deal with six wards, each having more than 15000 residents. The areas entail Wallacedene and Bloekombos (informal settlements), disadvantaged areas Scottsdene, Scottsville, as well as areas like Kraaifontein, Brackenfell Central, Brackenfell South and part of Kuils River.

The majority of the community lives in unsafe circumstances. Crime statistics are very high due to drugs, gangsterism, home invasions, child abuse, alcohol abuse etc.

I am new in my position and want to learn everything I can to assist and prevent and to grow through this. I believe that improvement can only be realised with the cooperation  of all stakeholderes including the communities.

I'm working in these sectors:

Government: local

I'm specialising in these theme(s):
