Help make public spaces safe

Today marks International White Ribbon Day and begins the 16 Days of Action against male violence towards women and girls.

As part of the 16 days of action and Redbridge Council’s commitment to making our public spaces safer for all residents including women and girls, we have organised the second set of women’s safety walks in the borough.

We would like to invite any women and girls that use the Chadwell Heath station and/or the Hainault station, plus surrounding areas, to join us for a women’s safety walk where you can help us to identify the places you do not feel safe and give your suggestions and ideas on how we can improve the space.

Please see the links below for more information and to register.

Walk it Out - Redbridge

The Walk it Out group is aimed at empowering young females and women in Redbridge to gain health and wellbeing.

The purpose is for women to lead a healthy, safe and happy life in Redbridge by walking and talking across parks and creating a safe environment where women feel acknowledged, heard and valued and are able to speak openly and share their experiences.

Every woman is unique and the group will support them by providing the information and power they need to take the initiative and make decisions to solve problems.

This group is not just about walking, it's encouraging women to have a positive mindset and believing in themselves which also helps to reduce anxiety, learn new skills and build confidence and resilience.
