Supporting Women and Girls in West Lothian

What is the Women & Girls initiative?

The Supporting Women and Girls initiative aims to help women feel safer in West Lothian's public spaces and places.

The initiative will also:

  • Provide a way for women and girls in West Lothian to speak up about the public spaces and places where they feel unsafe
  • Highlight to men the role they can have in helping women and girls feel safer

The West Lothian Community Safety Partners (CSP) - which is made up of West Lothian Council, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Centre, Voluntary Organisations and the Health and Social Care Partnership - want to improve Women's Safety across West Lothian and was inspired following the death of Sarah Everard in London.

This is where you can have your say on public spaces and places that you feel are unsafe. This may include practical concerns such as dark walkways or overgrown public paths where visibility is poor.
For information and support on safety of women and girls in public spaces, a range of links are provided
