Tackling Violence Against Women

We welcome the news that Lambeth Council have secured over half a million pounds from Safer Streets 3 Fund to tackle Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG). Brixton BID supported the council’s application which will include a targeted public realm project on Rush Common to increase safety and feelings of safety for women and girls using Rush Common.

The targeted public realm project on Rush Common, will be focused on increasing visibility using lighting, CCTV and environmental management, reducing the ability for perpetrators to ‘hide’ and increased safety and feelings of safety for women and girls using Rush Common.

The funding for VAWG will also allow Lambeth to develop a communications campaign aimed at VAWG perpetrators to be rolled out in schools and public spaces in Brixton; the creation of a reporting route; an officer who will respond to reports, build intelligence and task solutions based on this intelligence
