CitySafe Action in Brockley: We were there! On Friday 2nd December, on Brockley Road, Lewisham over 800 people (of which 600 were school children from eight schools) came together to celebrate the CitySafe Haven campaign. Leaders from St Andrew's United Reformed Church Brockley, St William of York, St. Hilda’s Church, Rushey Green Primary, MP's, Mayors, Councillors, Police Chiefs, temples and Mosques, businesses, local residents and the police helicopter all came together as a community to declare "This is our community, these are our streets, these are our shops, this is a city safe haven, this is OUR city safe Haven".
The City Safe haven campaign is based on the principle of bottom up, community led change. City Safe is a campaign organised by charitable alliance CITIZENS UK and LONDON CITIZENS. It grew out of the loss of twelve young lives in CITIZENS institutions across London and is dedicated to Jimmy Mizen. Launched at the O2 in 2009 in front of 2,500 young citizens it has established over 250 Safe Havens across the capital, including Lewisham Town Hall and City Hall.
