Leeds City
Safe Spaces

In September 2023 we launched our partnership with Leeds City Council to map out their accredited night time economy businesses to ensure that the people of Leeds could choose an appropriate venue for their night out. We launched with a fantastic Dance Troupe, a brass band and a carnival style procession all the way to Greek Street in the city centre. We are seeing huge downloads in the area and receiving overwhelming positive feedback from the people of Leeds.

North Lincolnshire

Our team have  launched the WalkSafe Safety Map working closely with the North Lincs Safer Nights campaign. By working with the Safer Nights Team we have been able to add over 50 important designated safer areas such as bars, clubs, taxi ranks and community support SOS points to our safety map. These locations give users across the North Lincs area knowledge and confidence on a night out that they can find help quickly and easily should they need it.

Hammersmith Business Improvement District Launch
