Future Proof Parks
This is the project that I was urging park groups at the meeting to get involved with so we can get more young people involved in our parks.
There are more details at www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/FutureProofParksIntro.pdf
They are looking for four groups to take part in each of the three years of the project, so 12 groups in all.
If your group is interested there is a questionnaire that you can fill in and send to them with some details about your group. Links to pdf & Word versions are below. Contact details to return the form are at the end.
Bristol Zero Tolerance
Following Charlotte’s presentation to the meeting I’ve added details for Bristol Zero Tolerance to our ‘Support’ page at www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/contacts/support/
Charlotte also mentioned their blog on attack alarms which might be useful - www.bristolzerotolerance.com/do-attack-alarms-help-to-address-gender-based-violence/ - and resources and information on street harassment are also here - www.bristolzerotolerance.com/take-action/take-action-as-an-individual/
