COUNCIL Seek Views Over Female Safety

6 September, 2021 | Community Noticeboard

WOMEN and girls in Inverclyde are being encouraged to have their say on their safety when out and about across the area.

Inverclyde Council has launched a survey to see whether any improvements should be made locally.

It is focused on the safety of women and girls but is open to all residents to have their say and raise any issues affecting female safety.

Councillor Lynne Quinn, Inverclyde’s women’s champion, said: “We have such an abundance of outdoor spaces and people use them for a variety of purposes, such as walking, cycling, exercising and sports, and everyone, including women, should feel safe when they are out and about.

“That’s why we must listen to local women and girls to find out what more could be done to improve theirs and the wider public’s safety.

“We all have a right to feel safe in our communities and I encourage all women and girls to take time to complete this short survey because your views are important and will help us make Inverclyde a better, safer place for everyone.”

The closing date is 30 September. Click here for the survey.
