Leeds Women’s Hub – Next Meeting Sep 25th

This hub meeting will focus on the potential solutions such as:

-Safe places in the city centre for women at night
-Safer taxi and other transport waiting areas
-More visible professionals making areas feel safer
-Training door staff, driver of taxis and buses as part of their professional accreditation

Relevant professionals from various disciplines have been invited to the next Hub Meeting. Attendees include representatives from:

Leeds Women’s Hub

The Leeds Women’s and Girls Hubs were established as a mechanism for any woman or girl, independent or professional, to contribute to decision making, and to influence and shape services for women and girls across the city. The Hubs enable the engagement of women and girls, those working with women and girls and the wider women’s sector, to drive forward the priorities set by women and girls and to contribute to the vision for Leeds to be ‘The Best City’.

Both Hubs are formally recognised as Leeds Equality Hubs and are members of Leeds City Council’s Equality Assembly.

The Women’s Hub was established in March 2017 when members first came together to discuss and agree working priorities, one such being “Women’s Safety” and also to set the aim for Leeds to be “A Woman Friendly City” – the first of its kind in the U.K.
