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.
This kit has been produced with the input and assistance from women and organisations who work to make public places safer for women. Special thanks to the women in the community who spoke to us about safety.
