During the last decades the Safe Community movement found that not only International Safe Community Support Centres were needed but also Regional Support Organizations. Their main task is to support Communities in their efforts to develop quality to the level of being designated – and re-deignated within five years. They also in some instances offer a possibility of a democratically elected network for co-operation between communities. Every second year they also organize regional Safe Communities Conferences.
