Violence against women and girls

Violence against Women and Girls, Crime Prevention & Personal Safety


Empowering Women, Ensuring Safety: A Comprehensive Course

Violence against women and girls is a pervasive issue that affects individuals across all genders, but women bear a disproportionate burden. The harsh reality is that women face elevated risks of physical assault, even murder, within their trusted circles. Furthermore, they are significantly more likely to endure sexual assault or exploitation throughout their lives, from early childhood to adolescence and beyond.

Alarming Statistics

  • Globally, a staggering 35% of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence at some point in their lives.
  • Women are more likely to suffer violence from intimate partners.

“Violence against Women and Girls” encompasses gender-based violence that causes or has the potential to cause physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering. This includes not only actual acts of violence but also the ominous threat of coercion, arbitrary deprivation of liberty, or intimidation, whether in public or private settings.

Our Commitment to Change

Safety Solutions have developed a comprehensive half-day training course dedicated to raising awareness about the unique risks faced by women and girls, both within the sanctuary of their homes and as they navigate the world independently. Our mission is to equip delegates with a comprehensive set of skills and safety strategies that empower them to effectively identify and engage with women and girls who might be at risk.

Interactive Training Delivery

Our training course is delivered virtually online, with the utmost sensitivity and engagement, prioritising opportunities for questions and discussions. The learning process is highly interactive and features a range of exercises designed to educate and motivate participants simultaneously.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Community Safety: Explore the specific risks and concerns related to violence against women and girls, including child sexual exploitation, gang affiliations, domestic violence, modern slavery, sexual harassment, and more.
  • Identifying High-Risk Locations: Understand the dynamics of high-risk areas, both during the day and at night, such as town/city centres, suburbs, parks/open spaces, bus/train/tube stations, taxis, schools, colleges, and universities.
  • Recognising Vulnerable Women and Girls: Learn to recognise signs and potential behaviours indicative of women and girls who may be at risk.
  • Effective Engagement with At-Risk Individuals: Overcome barriers and address concerns when engaging with individuals who may be at risk. This includes understanding the sensitive nature of their situations and how to offer support without causing further harm.
