Data from the 3-year evaluation (2008-2011) of the Community Safety Initiative (CSI) in Tallaght West, Co. Dublin.


The Community Safety Initiative seeks to improve people’s perceptions of safety, improve neighbour relations and promote a safe and healthy environment for children and familie through supporting local resident interaction and promoting collaborative responses to addressing local safety issues. The overall aims of the initiative are:

  • to improve safety and to promote pro-social behaviour across Tallaght West;
  • to improve community awareness and participation in local activities and services;
  • to encourage wide community engagement in maintaining a safe environment.

The evaluation was carried out by the Child and Family Research Centre, National University of Ireland, Galway.
