Statement from Cllr Harbi Farah on ending male violence against women
07 June 2022
As we reflect on the two years since the tragic murders of sisters Nicole and Bibaa, the council is absolutely committed to doing everything we can to bring an end to male violence against women.
"We will keep working with our partners, including the police to ensure that justice is done for those affected by violence in our community. If you’re a man reading this, there are plenty of actions you can take to keep women safe. Read The Good Guy’s Guide and call out the actions of other men when you see them acting or talking inappropriately. If you’re a woman reading this we want to hear your experiences. Help us by reporting incidents and speaking out."
For help and support ring the 24 hour National Domestic Violence Helpline free on 0808 2000 247.
In an emergency always call 999.
StreetSafe is a pilot service for anyone to anonymously report the public places where you have felt or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, eg street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, eg being followed or verbally abused.
