Members of the scheme carry a 'keep safe' card and may have a wristband. On the card there is a call centre number that can be contacted by the safe place to check the person's details. The call centre will then contact the person's responders to make sure someone who knows them the best can come to take them home.
The safe place will make sure that the person is safe and feels comfortable until their responder is able to attend.
To find out more about safe places, telephone 03307 260260 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
"Sometimes I have panic attacks and knowing that there are safe places to go to helps me to feel confident to get out and about. I think safe places will help many other people to feel confident to keep going out and being independent." Safe places member.
The safe places scheme was officially launched on 5 May 2016. You can read more details about the launch here.
