Nottingham BID is delighted to have joined the city’s Consent Coalition - a collective partnership of organisations within Nottingham who are working together to raise awareness of the importance of consent, banish myths about rape and sexual violence, and encourage survivors to access support and report any sexual violence

The coalition was launched in February 2020 and contains a wide range of professionals that are specialist in the field of sexual violence and abuse.

The Consent Coalition has received exceptional feedback and enthusiasm from local, regional and national organisations which has meant they have been able to reach hundreds of thousands of people through powerful, targeted messaging. The Consent Coalition is now nationally recognised as a best practice model of co-ordinated partnership work, and the approach taken in Nottingham has set a precedence to other cities on how to successfully tackle sexual violence.  

“Nottingham BID welcomes the opportunity to sign up as a partner to the Consent Coalition. Through our Managed City stream of delivery, Nottingham BID supports a wide range of initiatives, such as the funding of the Street Pastors, running the Best Bar None scheme and leading on the Purple Flag accreditation to create a safe and welcoming city centre,” said Alex Flint, CEO of Nottingham BID. 

“It has never been more important than now to pull resources together to tackle this kind of abuse and violence and to build on the work already achieved to make Nottingham city centre a safe place to visit.”
