Safer 6 in your town

Safer 6 banner

Our annual autumn six-week Safer 6 campaign runs across our six towns.

Organisations target their efforts and provide extra reassurance as the nights draw in – a time when crime and anti-social behaviour can often rise.

This builds on their close work together day in, day out throughout the year through the Safer Sandwell Partnership to make Sandwell a safer and Safer 6 star yellowcleaner.

The 10th annual Safer 6 campaign will run for six weeks starting on Saturday 7 September 2019 with a fun-packed open day with information, advice and entertainment at Haden Cross Community Fire Station, Cradley Heath, from 11am to 4pm.

Each town has a focus week with activities and events:

The key themes of this year's campaign are:

  • Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Supporting young people
  • Tackling environmental issues
  • Supporting vulnerable people
  • Working with partner organisations and local people

You can follow the campaign on Twitter using the #Safer6 and #SaferSandwell hashtags.

Sandwell Council is leading this year’s campaign with support from Sandwell Police, West Midlands Fire Service and a wide range of partner organisations and community groups.
