Answer for Sex Workers

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Ensuring London is safe and welcome at night is one of my top priorities, and as the capital becomes a truly 24-hour city we need to embed women's safety into our planning.

Amy Lamé, my Night Czar, hosted London's first Women's Night Safety Summit on 24 July 2017. It was attended by over 100 stakeholders representing women's safety and women in the workforce.

I understand that you are in contact with Amy's office to discuss further stakeholder input, including sex workers, as she continues to develop the Charter.
