SCC Youth Voice and Influence Team and Community Youth Services working in collaboration with young people’s group (SYP Young Peoples Independent Advisory Group) and South Yorkshire Police have been working on the issue of catcalling and harassment. As the conversation developed, a real insight was gained into what the young people have to deal with on the streets and in their lives. From vans pulling up beside them when they are in their school uniforms, to being filmed in secret and uploaded to social media. It was a shocking and moving conversation and everyone agreed we need to do something about educating people what it feels like to be cat called, intimidated, harassed, and stalked.
On the 17th October 2022 Sheffield’s new Women and Girls Night Time Safety Charter was launched in the Town Hall.
The charter is a Sheffield City Council partnership initiative that aims to tackle violence against women and girls. Aimed specifically at employers and businesses, the charter provides practical steps to improve the safety of women and girls who work, visit, or socialise in the night-time economy, and will be accompanied by a citywide training programme for those who sign up.
Please see our Training page for details of some free LGBTQ+ training available to Sheffield organisations
