The Safer Places scheme provides vulnerable people, particularly those with a learning disability, a safe place to go to where help can be summoned if they are feeling scared or upset while out on their own.
Hampshire is a safe place to live and visit but unfortunately, vulnerable people might be victims of bullying or harassment when they go out. There might also be occasions when they become lost or separated from their friends or carers, or simply disorientated.
Vulnerable people can request a card from their local co ordinator, on which they can write their name and the phone number of their trusted person(s). They carry this card with them and if needed, they can show it to staff at a Safe Place who will contact the trusted person on their behalf.
All Hampshire Safe Paces display a yellow sticker (like the picture on the right) in a prominent place.
