Safe Place is a simple scheme to help vulnerable people to stay safe while out and about in their community. The scheme is largely for people who:
- have learning disabilities or difficulties
- have dementia
- need support or require assistance whilst in public
However anyone who is feeling vulnerable, scared, confused or lost are able to access the scheme and ask for help.
About Safe Places
We are working with a range of organisations and businesses to create recognised environments where people can go knowing that they will be safe. These include:
- shops and cafes
- libraries, sports and community centres
- train and bus stations
Window stickers are to be displayed at the venues that are part of the scheme to show that they are a safe place to go.
The scheme is a partnership involving a number of agencies, voluntary groups and supporters including Hull City Council, Humberside Police, Police Crime Commisioner, Hull Community Safety Partnership, St Stephens, CASE, Barnardos and Dementia Academy.
