What about safety?

While the vast majority of the neighbours you will meet will be great people, there is no guarantee that you will feel comfortable with everyone. So while it’s great to extend the invitation to join the group to everyone, you must make your own decision and take full responsibility for who you decide to trust.If your instinct tells you to be wary of someone, be wary of them. You may prefer to have your initial gathering in a public place.

If anyone acts in a disrespectful or dangerous way, the Community Connectors should be told so the implications for the group can be considered. Serious matters should be reported to the authorities. Community Connectors and the organisation take no responsibility for the actions of people in your neighbourhood.
