Notification of a VADR CPD event in Melbourne
ADR in Richmond. The Work of the Street Pastors
Over recent years, in the UK and now in Australia, specially trained Street Pastors, members of various church groups, have been working in city hot spots to reduce conflict, violence and other potentially dangerous situations for people out late at night. They liaise with police, council and ambulance services, and there is good evidence that the streets in these often difficult areas are now much more peaceful. Andrew Satterley will speak about the work being carried out by his group, which operates in Richmond.
Andrew Satterley has been a Senior Nurse in Critical Care for the past 28 years, working across many specialties. At present he is a Clinical Nurse Specialist at the Austin Hospital and is project managing the use of patient diaries to reduce the psychological effects of ICU admission and decrease the incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder. For the past eight years he has been in a leadership role in the Street Pastor initiative, first in the UK, now in Melbourne, where he has taken on the role of Coordinator of Yarra Street Pastors. The group works closely with Victoria Police and Yarra City Council to help create a safer environment for our night-time economy.
