'Safe Places' Scheme
Safe Places is a scheme which helps vulnerable people deal with difficult situations that make them feel scared or at risk whilst they are out and about in the community. This could be anything from being lost to losing a mobile phone or being harassed or bullied..
Safe Places locations will carry the 'Safe Places' Logo in the window.
How do I get a Safe Places Card?
Individual members of the scheme will carry an "I need help" card with the details of a trusted contact.
If you would like to get a Safe Places card please contact Beth Poole (9593) or your local Neighbourhood Policing Team https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/your-area/
