Kingdom Services Group Champions Women’s Safety in the City 
Business is one of first to support the London Mayor’s Women’s Night Safety Charter 

Kingdom Services Group has pledged their support for the London Mayor’s Women’s Night Safety Charter. 

Launched by the Mayor’s Night Czar, Amy Lamé, it aims to make London a City where all women feel confident and welcome at night. 

It is asking businesses who operate during the night to sign-up to some simple pledges including; 
  • Nominate a champion to actively promote women’s night safety 
  • Demonstrate to staff and customers that we take women’s safety at night seriously 
  • Remind customers and staff that London is safe, but tell them what to do if they experience harassment when working, going out or travelling 
  • Encourage reporting by victims and bystanders 
  • Train staff to ensure that all women who report are believed 
  • Train staff to ensure that all reports are recorded and responded to 
  • Design public and work places to make them safer for women at night. 

Andrew Howe, Head of Risk and Mitigation at Kingdom Services Group says "Personal safety for all is a key area of concern for Kingdom Services Group so we're delighted to be signing up to this initiative ahead of it's formal launch. We are in the process of developing training and communications programmes to share with all employees across the Group promoting personal safety, and in particular for women during the night. At the heart of our recommendations will be the obvious, but often forgotten, tips on keeping safe including; 
  • Maintaining spatial awareness, not listening to music or calls with earphones 
  • Where possible, staying in well-lit and populated areas 
  • Only use accredited transport 
  • Let people know your plans 
  • Remain drink aware 
  • Allow friends/family to access your ‘find your phone’ app 

The initiative is to be formally launched on 19th July at City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London, SE1 2AA.
