Safer 6 2022 campaign

Safer 6 banner

Planning is well under way for this year's Safer 6 campaign – which will run from 31 October to 11 December 2022.

It’s Sandwell’s annual ‘6 weeks, 6 towns’ community safety partnership campaign aimed at raising awareness, boosting engagement with our communities, tackling concerns and showcasing services and support available that are available all year round to help people stay safe.

Each week will have a focus on a specific town and there will be a number of themes running throughout the campaign.

Activities will be in person and online. If you're a partner or community organisation and want to get involved with any activities or would like to discuss ways in which you can contribute, please email the Community Safety Team.
