Community Safety Charter launched to tackle crimes in public spaces

Published: 19 July 2022

The new Community Safety Charter encourages individuals, Neighbourhood Watch groups, businesses and organisations to take an active stance against crimes in public spaces, including harassment, hate crimes and antisocial behaviour.

The charter tagline is #BETHECHANGE and focuses on the role of active bystanders in leading change within their communities. The Charter supports greater understanding about how we recognise and deal with community safety issues and support victims by knowing where to get help, how and who to report to, enabling a more positive, proactive approach by the whole community when witnessing or experiencing confrontation, hostility, or harassment.
