A number of factors impact on the safety of Town Campers. Addressing family and domestic violence is as essential as functional infrastructure such as lighting in open spaces and digital access. We acknowledge that there are a number of contributing factors to use of violence, such as gender inequality, physical and mental health issues, homelessness, housing overcrowding, alcohol and drug issues, education and employment issues plus socioeconomic and historic disadvantage that often contributes to serious harm in relationships.
