Safety of Women at Night Tickets, Mon 25 Apr 2022 at 14:00 | Eventbrite

The sessions are part of Nottingham's partnership response to improving the safety of women and girls in our city. They are being funded by the Nottinghamshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner through the Home Office Safety of Women at Night fund. This training is just one of a range of initiatives and interventions being delivered by partners using the funding provided by the Police & Crime Commissioner. The aim is to build a zero-tolerance approach to violence against women and girls in Nottingham.

The session explores harassments and violence to women and girls in the night-time economy, including public transport. The session will provide an overview of how employees can respond in a range of scenarios and provide information on Nottingham's approach.

** Please bear in mind that this training does include reference to types of harassment and sexual abuse. It is possible that any training about domestic or sexual abuse has the potential to impact on each of us personally, please be aware that this may be the case before accessing the training.
