What Do We Do?

Centre Overview

Finglas Community Safety Forum began in 2011 following agreement among all stakeholders that a separate forum be held for each of the 3 main neighbourhoods that make up the greater Finglas area.
Since 2011 a annual schedule of 9 Forum meetings has been organised each year in Finglas East (St Canices BNS), Finglas West (St Fergal’s NS), and Finglas South (St Helena’s Family Resource Centre). 3 in January to May and 3 in September to November for each neighbourhood. A combined meeting open to residents from each of the neighbourhoods was subsequently added to this. This is hosted by the Garda at Finglas station in December.
The Finglas Safety Forum Coordinator is employed by Finglas Cabra Drug & Alcohol Task Force CLG. The Coordinator reports on a day to day to the Task Force Coordinator and is supported by the Garda Inspector at Finglas Garda Station. The Coordinator also works closely with the Dublin City Council Housing Manager.
The Safety Forum Coordinator liaises on a weekly basis with many of the residents that attend the Forum meetings in relation to community safety issues they are concerned about and may organize problem-solving meetings with residents, the Garda and Dublin City Council staff to find solutions to these issues.
Finglas Safety Forum is funded by Finglas Cabra Local Drug & Alcohol Task Force as part of the National Drug Strategy.

Key Aims & Objectives of Service

Finglas Safety Forum is a partnership between the local community, the Finglas/ Cabra Local Drugs Task Force, An Garda Siochana and Dublin City Council.
The aim of the forum is to provide the local community with the opportunity to identify issues of concern relating to crime, anti-social behaviour and estate management and then work in partnership with all of the key stakeholders to try to resolve them.
A local meeting takes place every two months for each area and members of the community are encouraged to attend.
