News — We’re part of the Safe Places Scheme!
We’re delighted to announce that we have joined the Safe Places scheme so that we can help ensure people of all abilities are able to safely enjoy accessing our community.
A network of Safe Places that act as temporary refuges, is now being established throughout our community.
Vulnerable people can opt to carry a Safe Places card which has names and numbers of relatives or friends who can be called for help if they feel vulnerable, scared or anxious while they are out and about. They may also need help with more serious issues such as bullying and harassment or theft for example.
Staff in the Safe Places receive disability/vulnerable adult training so they are prepared to offer a welcome and support.
