A Safe Place to go
Being in a town centre can be quite a daunting experience, this can be especially true in the run up to Christmas when it’s a lot busier with people trying to find that all important present.
If someone does feel vulnerable it’s therefore important that they have someone to go to for help.
That’s why many of our town centre locations are now registered as Safe Places. This means that if someone does need help then trained staff will be available to offer support and will contact a family member, adult social care, or the police, for assistance and keep them safe until they arrive.
Safe Place locations are identified by a distinctive orange and yellow Safe Place window sticker, you can also find out where they are by visiting safeplaces.org.uk.
