Women’s Safety – Safer Streets Consultation, 10am, Thursday 24th June 2021

Dear TRA committee member,

Safer Streets Funding June 2021 – Stakeholder Consultation

The Home Office has just released Round 3 of the Safer Streets Fund. Southwark Council in conjunction with Met Police and other partners will be submitting a bid and would be really grateful for your views to help shape the submission. The key aims of the fund are to:

·       reduce violence against women and girls (VAWG) and increase women and girls’ feelings of safety in public spaces

·       build the evidence base for what works on reducing VAWG crimes and increasing feelings of safety in the public domain

·       improve both the national and local data picture regarding VAWG crimes in public spaces, which could include increased reporting for some crime types

·       make public spaces safer for all

A consultation meeting will be held via zoom on Thursday 24th June at 10am. You can join simply by logging on to the session on Thursday. There is no need to book in advance.

Apologies for the extremely tight timescales but the Home Office have not given us much time to submit a bid.

Kind regards
