NIGHTSAFE: REST & RECOVERY
A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU
NightSafe has been set up by ChaplainWatch in cooperation with the State Gevernment in response to the many safety issues that surround the Fortitude Valley Entertainment precinct overnight and the nighttime economy.
The Rest and Recovery space is a bold initiative that effectively diverts minor and less serious incidents from clogging the emergency departments of our hospitals, ambulance service and police watchhouses, with notable cost effectiveness.
Functioning at peak times every weekend, the staff and volunteers of NightSafe are well trained and highly self-motivated to provide a service that is proficient, resourceful and successful.
NightSafe was officially opened on Thursday morning, 4 July 2013 by the Hon Jarrod Bleijie MP, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice along with Robert Cavallucci, Member for Brisbane Central. Photos from the event can be seen at the photo gallery.
