Safer Cities: Her Way Program

fairfield city council safer cities her ways project

Fairfield Council is partnering with Transport for NSW on the Safer Cities: Her Way program which will see a $1 million investment in Canley Vale aiming to improve feelings of safety, particularly for women and girls in public spaces.

About the Program

Safer Cities: Her Way is investing $10 million over two years to partner with 10 selected pilot councils across NSW to help improve feelings of safety in NSW cities and towns, particularly for women and girls moving about in public spaces near transport hubs. Fairfield City Council is one of 10 pilot councils in NSW partnering with Transport for NSW on the Safer Cities: Her Way program.

The program will engage women and girls to understand their feelings of safety when using public spaces and work directly with them to co-design and trial temporary improvements to the public spaces to help them feel safer.

Safer Cities: Her Way is part of the wider Safer Cities program led by Transport for NSW.

Engage with us

We want to know about your experiences of safety in public spaces in Canley Vale. Complete the community survey, drop a pin on the interactive map, or do both!

Get involved or stay updated

If you would like to participate in this project further, there will be opportunities for women and girls to join us on day or night walkshops and help us co-design temporary public space improvements. These walkshops involve on-site day and night walking workshops where you will visit Canley Vale as a group to observe the public spaces to see how safe, welcome and accessible it feels and to identify temporary improvements that could be made to the spaces.
