Women's Night Safe Space

WOMEN’S NIGHT SAFE SPACE

Women Friendly Leeds is working in partnership with Safer Leeds to create a safe space for women in the centre of Leeds. We will be running a funded pilot to support women who are out at night in Leeds. For the first 3 weekends in March (4th & 5th, 11th & 12th, 18th & 19th) there will be a support bus parked in Dortmund Square.

The bus will be by the Man with the Barrel Statue in Dortmund Square from 9pm-2pm. A trained team of staff, including health care professional and SIA trained security, will be on hand to support any woman for any reason.

This non-judgemental safe space is for women who are on a night out if they feel concerned, vulnerable, or unsafe.

There will be mobile phone charging facilities, water and most importantly a friendly face who can help you with your concerns.

Spread the word and let people know that there is a safe place they can go if they are feeling unsafe in Leeds City Centre.
