Free women's safety talks

Last Modified July 08, 2024

Would you like tips to help keep you safe day-to-day? If so, please come along to our FREE women's safety talks.

Events have been organised across the borough, which will cover risk awareness, safety on the street, stalking, conflict management and much more.

At the sessions you will learn about personal safety in both your professional and personal life; including public transport, traveling to and from home, lone working and work visits. We also look at how to use technology to assist with your safety and avoid pitfalls.

The events will take place on:

  • Thursday 25 July between 6:30pm and 8:30pm at The Civic Offices in Borehamwood
  • Wednesday 14 August between 6:30pm to 8:30pm at The Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar
  • Sunday 8 September between 2pm and 4pm at The Niland Centre in Bushey.

Cllr Christian Gray, Portfolio Holder for Communities, Neighbourhoods, Enforcement, Economic Development and Transformation, said: “Violence against women and girls is an alarming reality that affects millions worldwide. This is unacceptable.

“The community safety team here in Hertsmere have been working closely with the Community Security Trust (CST) and the police to deliver women’s safety talks across the borough. These talks offer women practical everyday advice on how to stay safe both personally and professionally, so I would encourage people to come along to learn more about how to protect themselves.”

Free refreshments will be available. Anyone aged 18 or over is welcome to attend.

The safety talk is being coordinated by Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership (CSP) in partnership with the Community Security Trust's (CST) SAFE Programme.

CST is a charity that protects British Jews from antisemitism and related threats. The SAFE Programme was established in 2019 to help communities in the UK to access relevant security advice. SAFE shares the CST’s security knowledge with groups outside the Jewish community that are vulnerable to violence, extremism or hate crime.
