The Safe Haven Network

Lambeth and Southwark councils are targeting harassment spaces and 'hot spots' in and around their respective borders.  The Safe Haven Network, the first of its kind in London, will see staff within businesses around both boroughs undergo training with a crime prevention agency, the Safer Business Network.

Women who feel unsafe or have been harassed will be able to get help from a safe haven premises on businesses, and staff will be able to offer assistance.

Further information on the Safe Haven Network, including the areas in Lambeth that are part of the scheme, can be found on the Love Lambeth website.
