Safe Place Schemes are being set up across the country

What is the Safe Place Scheme?

The Safe Place Scheme helps people with learning difficulties across the country feel confident and safe whilst out and about. If someone feels they are being bullied, abused or harassed while they are out they have “Safe Places” to go to.

Window stickers are used in public places (shops, community centres and libraries etc) that are part of the scheme to identify themselves as Safer Places. Cards are also carried by individuals (sometimes the Hate Crime Reporting Card), with useful contact numbers on (i.e. helpline numbers, carer’s details, family contact details etc).

If an individual needs help they can enter a Safe Place and ask for a contact to be made. A card is not necessary and help can still be asked for from “Safe Places”. Safer Places will be ready to help and assist anyone who goes to them for help and create a temporary safe haven for them whatever the circumstance.
