At Safe & the City, we believe that the injustice and cultural inequality that results from sexual harassment and human right violations can be improved by leveraging technology, crowdsourced data and working together as individuals, communities, cities and business ecosystems to create change. Through a coordinated approach of training, learning and community awareness, we work with businesses, government & authorities, landlords and retail for mutual benefit; sharing our data and insights. By working together; we can inform, empower & transform communities to be safer, more inclusive places to walk, work, shop & live.
We offer your location to be identified as a Safe Site on our app for people feeling vulnerable on their journeys. If you haven't been trained in safeguarding we offer a low-cost online and offline programme to increase awareness, knowledge and resources to keep your staff, customers and community safer.
UN Women’s Global Flagship Initiative, “Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces” is the first-ever worldwide programme that develops, implements, and evaluates tools, policies and comprehensive approaches on the prevention of and response to sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls across different spaces.
UN Women UK approached Safe & the City, to pilot an innovative approach to gathering our insights in London to understand the challenges women and girls face in public spaces throughout Greater London. These powerful experiences from our users are informing change at all-levels including future policies.
Volunteering with Safe & the City has offered me an incredible experience I will use finishing up my University degree and later in my career. I was able to be part of an amazing team, work on meaningful projects and add value towards something I'm passionate about- everyone's right to feel safe.
We have all sorts of opportunities for talented, ambitious and passionate people about making smarter and safer cities. If this sounds like you, get in touch!
