Women and street safety
WayfinderWoman hosted an informative and lively safety talk discussion from Sussex Police on November 18th at their drop in hub in Eastbourne.
This was for women only and Inspector Kara Tombling and her colleague Hannah Toubi, VAWG (Violence Against Women and Girls) Community Navigator, gave an exceptional talk which covered how Sussex Police support women and the routes women can use should they need the support and help of the Police. Kara sits on the VAWG group representing Sussex Police and is passionate about this issue.
Subjects covered were:
- Street Safe
- How to report
- Activities – such as engagement events and patrols
- How to stay safe
The event was well attended and Kara and Hannah were bombarded with questions which they took in their stride and answered brilliantly, in fact so well received were they that they ran over time.
|Kate Tombling said, “This provided an excellent opportunity to share what we within Sussex Police are doing to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls, from investigation to preventative work. It was enlightening to hear from women and girls in our community to understand how we are.”|
This event reflects what WayfinderWoman is all about. Helping women to understand the support and help that is out there should they find themselves in need.
