Safe Place - keeping you safe in Hull
Safe Place is a simple scheme to help vulnerable people to stay safe while out and about in Hull. 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.
Apply for a members card
You can apply for a self help card by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Individual members of the scheme carry the card which contains their details and who to contact. This is often a family member, carer or social worker.
About the 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.
