The council has been carrying out a year-long programme of enhanced work to address the safety of women and girls in the borough. The safety of all women and girls has always been a high priority for us and that’s why we are committed to safeguarding and preventing harm.

Last year, we started a programme of work to address the safety of women and girls in the borough. The safety of all women and girls has always been a high priority for us and that’s why we are committed to safeguarding and preventing harm.


As more services re-open for face to face support, we wanted to better understand the extent of threatening or intimidating experiences of women and girls in public spaces, views on accessibility to support and ways in which safety can be improved in public spaces for women and girls. The work has included a public survey that ran for nine weeks in the summer of 2021, as well as a series of focus groups and 1-to-1 discussions with women's support groups to ensure that we could gather the views even of those who may not have access to an online survey.


You can find the final report and key findings in the documents section on the right. But this work is just the beginning. For more information on the council’s Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Engagement plan, and next steps, please visit our website.
