Safer Places

Shops, businesses and organisations who join Safer Places can provide a safe temporary place to go if a person with a learning disability or dementia feels distressed, vulnerable or scared while out in the community. 

Places which have joined the scheme can be identified by a Safer Places sticker at the entrance.

People who join the scheme will have a Keep Safe card, which will include the names and contact numbers of two relatives or friends who be called on for help. They will need to show this card to obtain help in the establishments who have signed up to the scheme.

There are Safer Places all over the city, and are developing the scheme further all the time, so please check back soon to see which new places have been added.

Please follow the links below to see a list of the Safer Places, to apply for a Keep Safe card and to look at the members' guide.
