This chapter illustrates that stigmatisation and vulnerability are two sides of the same coin beginning by defining both of these terms based on the literature and the dilemmas and dichotomies that emerge. Both of these socially undesirable outcomes transcend the criminal justice system specifically and social isolation and/or exclusion more generally. The chapter revisits the history and experience of community safety and consider how vulnerability ought to be given centre-stage within community safety strategies, goals and action plans through a collective form of community-based leadership. It considers vulnerability and the stigmatisation of individuals within the context of community safety. The chapter describes a woeful dichotomy in examining the role that government agencies play in both deciding on policy and its implementation, often blaming the individual rather than the broader determinants of the policy decision.
