MEDIA ALERT: Minister Plato takes Youth Safety outreach to Lavender Hill

Tomorrow, Thursday 19 March 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, together with officials from the Department of Community Safety, will conduct Youth Safety Outreach engagements in Lavender Hill.

These engagements form part of a larger series of outreach events across the province to provide more information and the relevant requirements to communities, non-governmental organisations operating in the community as well as the religious fraternity operating in the area on how to successfully partner with the Department of Community Safety towards a safer community – Better Together.

The various engagements will include sessions on the:

  • Northlink Bursary partnership;
  • Chrysalis Academy; and the
  • Youth Safety and Religious Partnership;

Minister Plato Said: “The outreach has a particular youth focus as we cannot allow a generation of youth to miss out on existing opportunities, both from the public and private sector, which will empower them to improve their own lives and the lives of their families”.

There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews. (For background information on the youth focused initiatives, see accompanying document.)
