Safer 6

Safer 6 banner

Sandwell's annual autumn Safer 6 campaign has a special online focus this year.

The campaign, now in its 11th year, will promote a wide range of safety, crime prevention and healthy living advice.

The campaign will also support the ongoing promotion of advice and guidelines around Covid-19, to help protect people from the virus.

Each of the six weeks will have a different theme:

  • Week 1 (21-27 September 2020): Health and wellbeing 
  • Week 2 (28 September-4 October 2020): Exploitation 
  • Week 3 (5-11 October 2020): Domestic abuse
  • Week 4 (12-18 October 2020): Hate crime
  • Week 5 (19-25 October 2020): Modern slavery
  • Week 6 (26 October-1 November 2020): Crime and anti-social behaviour

As well as online activities, the Safer 6 team will be targeting advice and information to people via posters, leaflets and community networks.

The campaign is led by Sandwell Council for the Safer Sandwell Partnership, which brings together the council, Sandwell Police, West Midlands Fire Service and many other partner organisations.

Follow the campaign on Twitter and Instagram using the #Safer6 hashtag and on the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for Safer Sandwell Partnership organisations and services.
