VIOLENCE PREVENTION TRAINING
Since 2008, CSP has established Community Action Councils to provide advice and guidance throughout the execution of the Programme. They have contributed significantly by ensuring the relevance of the programmes providing advice to inform the content, context and design of various interventions. CSP recognizes the value of these Councils and have provided certified training in counselling and mediation, awareness building sessions on domestic violence and child maltreatment as well as facilitated a range of networking and other developmental opportunities.
Violence Prevention Training is provided to residents on an ongoing basis to increase their capacity to act as local change agents in relation to crime and violence. This training enables residents to think and act strategically in relation to pervasive crime and violence concerns.
Twenty-one training courses have been undertaken to-date with over 700 persons participating.

Upcoming training for CACs include:
Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) - The training targets community residents, police officers and local government representatives, and, is being conducted by the National Institute of Crime Prevention in conjunction with Deloitte and Touche. The overall objective of this programme is to reduce incidents, opportunities and fear of crime through building awareness of CPTED principles and through the improvements of selected public spaces in CSP's partner communities.
" Champions for Change" Leadership and Advocacy Programme- The overall purpose of this programme is to equip targeted residents of the partner communities with the knowledge and skills to effectively lead primary prevention efforts within their communities after the close of CSP in 2014. The training should equip all participants to be proactive leaders around the issue of violence in their community and play an active role in changing community norms regarding violence. This 12-month program includes theoretical training in concepts of community based crime prevention, risk and protective factors, gender based violence and strategies for community building. Practical skills building in leadership skills, communication skills, advocacy, media and networking skills will further strengthen their ability to function post CSP.
