From July to December 2021, we are inviting everyone who lives, works, studies, or socialises in Islington to tell us where and why you are feeling unsafe and what we could do to make Islington a safer space for all.
Have your say via our interactive map on the safer spaces website
To be kept up to date with our progress, including what improvements we are able to make based on your feedback, enter your email address into the safer spaces website, after you have answered the safety questions.
We are also delivering a leaflet to every home in the borough asking you to anonymously tell us where you feel unsafe. You can post this back to us for free in any letterbox.
We know that how safe you feel can be influenced by many factors – including age, gender expression, race, ethnicity, visible religious affiliation, and expression of sexuality, as well as how dark it is and how many people are outside. Our ambition is that no one should feel afraid of walking, running, cycling, or sitting in any part of Islington, regardless of your personal identity, the time of day, or how busy it is.
Your feedback will help us better identify locations of concern so we can deliver practical improvements that ensure you feel safe and comfortable throughout our borough. Together, we will keep each other and local communities safe, making Islington a safer space for all.
If you have any questions, please email us.
