The NHW Accreditation and Support Programme aims to:
- Provide support to NHW to become sustainable and capable safety partners within Government and communities.
- Acknowledge and recognise the efforts of accredited NHW and their contribution to safety.
- Identify and document safety concerns within communities.
All NHW must first apply for Accreditation to the Western Cape Department of Community Safety (DoCS). Once approved for accreditation, NHW becomes eligible for resourcing, training and funding.
