Safer Ashburton is a non-profit community organisation that has been operating as a charitable trust for 20 years. We provide a variety of free and confidential services for the Ashburton community. The organisations focus is upon improving the safety of the local community with a diverse range of services available to young people and their families of all ages.
Keeping families safe by enabling them to engage with their community is a priority for Safer Ashburton. We endeavour to assist the community in creating healthy, strong and well supported young people and families.
The organisations direction is guided by the principle that; ''a sustainable safer community will only be achieved through providing services and programmes that support and strengthen individuals and families, enabling them to make good choices and through providing positive opportunities and pathways for them to choose''.
