Projects funded by round three of the Safer Streets Fund.
Round three of the Safer Streets Fund has an emphasis on the safety of women and girls, primarily through the design and management of public spaces. On 3 October 2021, the Home Office announced that 57 projects had been awarded grant funding, including the British Transport Police.
The successful bids comprise a range of creative interventions, including:
- bystander training programmes
- guardianship schemes
- street pastors
- taxi marshals
- safe haven spaces
- educational and awareness raising initiatives working with schools and young people
- personal safety applications
- the use of a theatre production to challenge attitudes and behaviours
A 2019 report by the Local Government Association, Approaches to managing the night-time economy, provides some case studies involving policing and other partner agencies.
