Martyn's Law

What is Martyn's Law?

If your organisation, venue or event, whatever its nature, has capacity to bring together 100 (or more) members of the public, this upcoming piece of legislation will apply to you. Martyn's Law will improve protective security and organisational readiness across the UK by mandating, for the first time, those responsible for certain premises and events to consider the terrorist risk and how they would respond to an attack.

Council offices, sports grounds and leisure centres, colleges and universities, cafes and restaurants, community centres, pubs and nightclubs, garden centres, festivals, fund-raising events, family fun days, village fayres, hospitals and health centres, sporting and fitness events, retailers and shopping centres, are just some examples that need to pay attention.

The Protect Alliance UK logoFareham Borough Council has teamed up with The Protect Alliance (UK), a not-for-profit organisation devoted to Martyn's Law, to stay up to date with the latest information on how the legislation is progressing and provide resources to support affected organisations in Fareham every step of the way. This webpage will be updated as the legislation is brought forward and passed in to law. You can also click here to visit The Protect Alliance (UK) website External Hyperlink.
