Welcome to Safe Places
The safer places scheme exists to help vulnerable people.
A safer place is somewhere you can go to for help if you ever feel upset or afraid when you are out and about.
How Can a Safe Place Help Me?
You can apply to receive a safe places card. On the card you can write the number of someone you want the safe places to contact if you need help. If you are ever confused or frightened while you’re in the community you can go into any place that shows the safe places logo staff at the safe places will listen to you and try to help. They can use your safe places card to contact someone else for you if it is not something they can help you with.
Who can join safe places?
The scheme is for people who are over 16 and who might be vulnerable when they go out.
You might think you are vulnerable if you have,
- A Learning Disability
- Autism/ Asperger’s
- Dementia /Alzheimer’s
- A Physical Disability
If you are not sure called Benji on Wednesday or Thursday at 020 3475 1305 for a chat.
Where are the safe places?
They are a wide number of safe places located across the Borough of Barnet. They have a sticker in the window or have the logo displayed to let you know they are a safe place.
They are all places that are open to the public such as shops, offices or public buildings.
