The Night-Time Safety Conference

The Night-Time Safety Conference 2023

The deaths of Sara Everard and Sabina Nessa in 2021 highlighted the reality of night-time safety in the UK. Yet over a year on from these murders the latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that feelings of unsafety after dark, disproportionally so for women, have continued to rise.

Government initiatives such as the Violence Against Women and Girls strategy and the Safer Streets Fund are a step in the right direction but further action is still needed to prevent night-time harassment and violence. Local authorities, police and community groups have been pioneering initiatives to improve safety measures in the night-time economy.

The public sector can build upon this ongoing positive work by coming together and sharing best practice strategies and local solutions to tackle night-time crime.

The Night-Time Safety Conference 2023: Ensuring a Safer Night-Time Economy for All offers CPD (continuing professional development) certification credits.

Designed for professionals from across local authorities, emergency services, and voluntary groups, Government Events has organized the online Night-Time Safety Conference 2023 for Oct. 12, 2023.
