Westminster Night Safety Walks and Audit
We're currently helping to manage and deliver Night Safety Training in Westminster. This initiative will provide free training in Anti-Sexual Harassment and Vulnerability to businesses and venues in the Westminster borough.
In February 2023, we started working in partnership with the City of Westminster to deliver various training programmes for those who work, or own a business in the borough. This initiative forms part of Westminster's Night Safety Programme.
Westminster’s Night Safety Programme aims to improve safety – and perceptions of safety – for all women in the evening and night-time economy (ENTE), encouraging sustainable action among businesses, residents, and visitors towards perpetrators’ behavioural change. Westminster aims to set an innovative, inclusive precedent for eliminating VAWG in its public spaces.
The objective is to collect data on the kinds of safety concerns facing women and girls in public and private transport and public places, as well as the factors that pose a threat to and may lead to increased VAWG.
We will provide women and girls who live, work, or visit the city an opportunity to voice their safety concerns or incidents that they may or have faced. As such, this Audit will provide clear guidance on safety concerns of women and girls using public spaces and equip the Westminster borough will the tools to focus their efforts where they are needed most.
From the research conducted, we will present the borough of Westminster with a Women and Girls' Safety in the Night Time Economy Report and Strategy. We will perform extensive research surrounding the evening nighttime economies within the borough.
This research includes:
Consumer and employee surveys and focus groups
Stakeholder interviews and workshops
2 evenings of street interviews with women and girls in Westminster.
2 overnight audits to review the area at night from a policy, operational, user and place management perspective.
We will present the research findings of this review in a report alongside expert recommendations on how the evening nighttime economy should develop moving forward. This will help inform future ENTE and women and girls' safety strategies for Westminster.
