As the nights become longer and darker, some people may feel less safe using our public spaces and streets. This is why I am asking your business to become a ‘Safe Space’ for anyone who feels at risk walking home.
Becoming a ‘Safe Space’ means people walking home and feeling worried can pop into your premises and ask for assistance.
How Safe Spaces works?
Step 1: Sign up using the form on the website.
Step 2: You will receive a Safe Spaces package with a large sticker to display in your premise window and a poster with information to share with your employees about Safe Spaces.
Step 3: In the event someone needs to use your premises as a place of safety, you provide them with facilities to charge their phone, call a taxi or 999 if necessary. Please note, that if someone is behaving violently towards a member of the public or your staff, always call 999.
This campaign will make clear to the public that you are a business that supports the safety of all members of our community and the right of all to travel without fear of harassment or violence.
I want us to work together to make our community – Balham, Earlsfield, Tooting and Furzedown – to be somewhere we all feel respected, welcome and safe.
If you have any questions or would like to contact me, please call my team on: 020 3621 2509 or by email: email@example.com
