Safe Cities London

Co-chaired by Anova and the City of London, Safe Cities London is committed to making London a safe city where women, girls, nonbinary and trans individuals, and survivors access public spaces and participate in public life without fear or experience of sexual violence.

Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces (Safe Cities) is a worldwide United Nations Women initiative that draws attention to the issue of violence against women and girls in public spaces, such as the workplace, a school, a restaurant or bar, while using public transportation or recreational spaces, or in a park. The goal of the Safe Cities initiative is to empower women and girls and create safer communities by identifying strategies for preventing and responding to violence.

The Safe Cities London Scoping Study provides a summary of results from the participative mapping tool and focus groups.

The Safe Cities Action Plan offers comprehensive, and innovative solutions to address sexual violence in London public spaces.
