Following the tragic murder of Sarah Everard on the 3rd March 2021 the government have funded the North Somerset and Somerset Council’s Safer Streets program so that we hear the voice of women around this issue and also help promote safety in public spaces.

As part of this program we are asking partners to upskill staff on this important subject through our free training and raise awareness within organisations and communities by sharing the downloads and social media links below:
