Forward Leeds workers will be at Leeds train station on Friday, 29th November as part of the city’s Operation Nightsafe2 weekend.

The coordinated campaign which includes West Yorkshire Police, Safer Leeds and City Centre Management will also see our team staff a stall at the Trinity Centre on Saturday 30 November.

Operation Nightsafe2 aims to keep people safe and feeling safe in Leeds city centre as Christmas approaches.

Forward Leeds Area Manager Helen Cook said: “We are delighted to be asked to be a part of Nightsafe2. We know that drink can flow freely throughout the festive period. It can cause people to say or do something that they are sorry for later on. We’ll be offering advice and information to help people ensure they have the best time possible with no regrets.”

As well as offering information, tips and advice Forward Leeds will be promoting its Safer Seasonal Drinking campaign.

Rachel Dukes, Health Improvement Specialist at Leeds City Council said: “I wanted Forward Leeds to be centre stage. They have got a stall in Trinity Leeds which is fantastic news. It allows Forward Leeds to show people how to have a great, safe and regret-free night out in Leeds.”

“I would encourage people to come over, stop and speak to Forward Leeds and think for a minute about their relationship with alcohol. I know it will be a great success and I will be there Saturday morning.”

Other partners in Operation Nightsafe2 include the Street Angels, the Angels of Freedom, Businesses Against Crime in Leeds, the Street Ambassadors and the British Transport Police.

Leeds city centre is the third-largest city in the UK with over 500 licensed premises & venues spread across the city centre attracting thousands of visitors into the city every day.

Leeds is rated as one of the top night time stay destinations in the UK and is proud to have been accredited with the Purple Flag status since 2017 due to its safe and diverse environment.
