Preventing Violence against Women and Girls

Welcome to London Borough of Harrow's Safer Spaces engagement page.

We want to ensure that our public spaces are safe spaces for all women and girls – and we need your help.

If you live, work, study or socialise in Harrow, please tell us where and why you are feeling safe or unsafe.

While mainly asking for the experience of women and girls, the survey welcomes the views of all genders.

How to get involved?

Trigger Warning – this survey asks questions about VAWG in Harrow which some may find distressing. There is a list of support organisations on the right-hand side of the page, in case you need to reach out for support.

You can use the map (below) to give us feedback on as many places as you want. Drag the pin to the location you want and mark where you feel safe or unsafe. Answer the questions that pop up to tell us why you felt safe/unsafe and suggest what more we can do to help.

Please answer as many questions as you can and skip those that you do not wish to answer or return to complete later if you need a break. Be mindful of your own safety and the safety of others if writing about your own experiences and please do not include names of anyone involved.

Safe Spaces in Harrow

If you’re experiencing domestic abuse or feeling unsafe while in the community, you can attend a local ‘Safe Space’ and let staff know that you need help. They can provide a safe and discreet way to reach out to family/friends, or help you to contact a helpline, specialist support service, or the police in an emergency. These are at selected pharmacies, banks and supermarkets.

We’ve placed Gold star pins on our map to show the safe spaces in Harrow where you can access help.

What happens next?

Feedback will help officers better understand the concerns, perceptions and experiences of women and girls in Harrow and identify public spaces of concern, what improvements are needed and to communicate what will be done to alleviate these problems.

The information will also be relayed in discussions with the community and partners.
