Understand areas and situations that disempower women so they can be managed, similar to the 'Safety House' program where locals and local businesses would volunteer to be a refuge for (the program was aimed at children and the elderly) people whom were distressed/felt unsafe. These locations were identifiable by signage placed on letterboxes, front gates and shop windows. The individual was able to talk to someone who was coached in what action to take.

With perceiving where unsavoury activity occurs, sugested in Earl Co's controbution 'Safe Walk app' business in that area can facilitate an improved enviroment, increasing footfall to that area and helping their business. Residents could also utilise that by changing the stigma associated with their locality and improve general house prices.
