Provide advice, guidance and interventions to help people remain safe

A community safety adviser provides life-improving advice, guidance and interventions that support people to remain safe and reduced from risks of harm such as fire, falls, crime or due to the circumstances in which the individual is living. In this role, you’ll be part of a multi-agency team working in partnership with a wide range of organisations that provide support to the community. You’ll need to have a good understanding of the communities in which you work and be able to engage with all of their members.

Interventions could include brief advice, screening, signposting, fitting risk reduction equipment, advocacy, promoting self-help and providing literature and information.
