Safe Space

In partnership with British Transport Police and Network Rail, Team London Bridge launched a ‘Safe Space’ inside London Bridge Station throughout the festive period of 2018.

Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 17:00 to midnight, the area (located next to the station reception near Platform 15) was staffed by medics as well as British Transport Police officers who were on hand to assist the vulnerable and ‘worse for wear’ in and around the station. 

With medical and security incidents typically peaking over the Christmas and New Year period, the purpose of the project was to ensure passengers – many of whom work and socialise locally – get home safely without falling victim to crime, or causing harm to themselves and others.  We hope to repeat the project in 2019.
