The Safer Ealing Partnership (SEP) wants to hear the from the borough’s women and girls about how safe they feel in Ealing’s public spaces.
Following the recent high-profile murders of women in public spaces across in London, women’s safety has become a national issue. Across the UK, 97% of
women aged 18-24 have reported experiencing harassment in public.
In response, the SEP is launching an in-depth listening exercise, which includes a confidential online survey, where women and girls in Ealing are
encouraged to share their thoughts.
The four key themes the SEP will consider are:
• What role the Safer Ealing Partnership should play in creating safe spaces for women and girls
• The places in the borough where women and girls say they feel unsafe
• The experiences of harassment and abuse of women and girls in the borough
There is also the opportunity to ask to take part in a focus group where these issues will be discussed in greater depth. You can sign up to join a focus group
on the give my views platform.
The responses will help to inform SEP’s violence against women and girls strategy, which is due to be published in Spring 2022.
Fighting inequality is one of the council’s three priorities. Working with the SEP to make the borough safer for women and girls is one of the ways that the
council is looking to achieve this goal.
