The UK government recently announced a large fund aiming to improve the safety of public spaces of concern to women and girls.
The money can be used to fund a range of interventions, such as CCTV cameras, improved street lighting, educational programs, transport, neighbourhood watch schemes, and close working with night-time economy establishments.
West Mercia Police, Worcester City Council, Worcester Business Improvement District, Worcestershire Regulatory Services and the University of Worcester are considering making a bid for the fund and want to hear the views of women and girls living and working in Worcester that would complement schemes such as Street Pastors, Ask Angela, City centre radio communication system, Safe Place and Taxi Licensing.
We want to know about any local places that make you feel unsafe, as well as any suggestions you might have on how to make women and girls feel safer and reduce the risk of them becoming victims of crime.
This consultation will run from 17 May – 31 May 2021 and we will know if we have been successful in a bid by August this year.
Please take 5 minutes to complete our short survey.
