The Safe Women Project

The Plan It Safe kit provides a comprehensive overview of a range of options and strategies to promote safer public places for women in your local area.

This kit is for anyone who is interested in improving women's safety in public places whether they are town planners, police officers, local government officers, community workers, a local women's group or residents. It is both an educational and practical tool for community safety advocates.
