Thank you to everyone who participated.

Share your experiences of places that make you feel safe or unsafe in Darebin.

We support a community where everyone is equal and respected. We want to know more about your experiences and take these into consideration for future planning. We want to know if you feel safe and about your experiences - anywhere around Darebin - from the parks, pools and sports facilities you visit, to streets and public transport stops. We want to know about places where you don’t feel equal and respected, to help us influence the services, programs and facilities that we deliver.

We want to hear from you no matter your age, gender or background. Your story can help create a more equal and respectful community for everyone.

Please note that this survey will ask about sensitive topics which some people may find difficult. If this survey brings up any issues for you, there are supports available. See the FAQ for detail on support.

How do I participate?

To get involved, place a pin on the map below to give feedback on a place, facility or service. Describe your experiences of safety and answer the prompted questions.

How will my data be used?

We will use your feedback to plan make public spaces in Darebin safer and more inclusive. Feedback from the community will also help with the prioritisation for delivery of future improvement projects.

For places described that aren’t managed by Council, such as public transport, arterial roads or private property, we will contact the appropriate organisation to advocate for those improvements.

When placing a pin on the map, your username and comment will be available for others to see. Other responses will be anonymous. Check the 'Simple steps on how to use the map' in the Document Library section of the page if you have not used a map tool before.
