We are proud partners to Chelmsford City Council & Chelmsford For You (Chelmsford BID) who have worked with us since 2021 on creating and delivering their 'Women's Safety In Our City' campaign and safety charter.
"Chelmsford has held the prestigious Purple Flag status since 2011, the award recognises areas that have safe and vibrant night-time economies. The award is based on five key themes: safety, movement, appeal, place and policy. Chelmsford has many effective interventions to support visitors such as CCTV, an SOS bus, Pubwatch, street pastors and taxi marshals, together with a wide range of public realm improvements being introduced in recent years. However, the introduction of the Women's Safety Charter brings a great opportunity to influence behaviour change by adopting a capable guardian and active bystander approach for individuals and businesses. This will influence behaviours which will improve perceptions and in turn will increase confidence for all users of the evening economy. The City Council is pleased to partner with Chelmsford for You and Karen Whybro to deliver this important initiative"- Spencer Clarke, Public Protection Manager, Chelmsford City CouncilWe are proud to have been commissioned to create professionalism training for front-line officers at Essex Police in disrupting and challenging sexism and misogyny in the workplace.
