The OPCC are looking to make an application for the Safer Street Fund which has been announced this week. The focus of this round of the Fund is on public spaces and primarily, but not exclusively, focused on public areas of concern for women and girls.
Public Spaces will need to be identified of where women and girls feel unsafe or disproportionally experience Violence (VAWG related crimes).
It is of paramount importance that any funding secured is obtained with the first-hand experiences and voices of women and girls at the heart of any application.
To support the consultation process within the concentrated timeframes for the bid The OPCC are launching two surveys to identify local areas to target, support engagement and to corroborate existing local data that they hold.
The surveys will be open until 14th June 2021 at 5pm. Please find the survey links below.
