case study
Wakefield Safe Place Project

We received funding from the Mayor of West Yorkshire to deliver our Safe Place Project workshops to night time economy actors in the city centre of Wakefield.

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority was granting funding for initiatives which align with the Police and Crime Plan priority and Safer Places and Thriving Communities, supporting policing, crime and community safety. We received funding to deliver six sessions covering sexual violence, spiking, hate crimes and domestic violence. 

Collaboration with the Night Time Economy 

Once the funding was awarded, our specialist sub-team for Wakefield opened up a line of contact with venues in Wakefield. As well as notifying about the sessions on offer, our team had calls with management to ascertain their unique issues and challenges in order to create bespoke workshops for Wakefield city centre staff. 

We used our knowledge of Wakefield to create a bespoke marketing campaign so that all clients have aligned messaging within venues that is consistent and impactful.

‘It was insightful to hear different experiences and different encounters for us all to be aware of and to discuss what we all believed to be the right course of action together as a group, but to also understand that every situation is different and that has to be handled carefully.’ - Brick and Liquor, Bar Manager

‘We found the session useful in learning how to identify harmful behaviours. As a man it’s not something that I've directly experienced much so it’s useful and humbling to hear from a woman’s perspective.’ - Wakefield Theatre Royal, Manager
