The Safer Places scheme is to help people when they go out. Sometimes when you go out things can happen and you may need help but there is no one around to ask. You might have lost your bus pass or someone has been unkind and you feel upset and afraid. A Safe Place is somewhere you can go to for help if this ever happens to you.
How can a Safe Place help?
You can apply to receive a Safer Places card. You can write up to 2 numbers of people you would want the Safe Place to contact if something happened whilst you were out and about.
Staff at the Safe Place will listen to you and try to help. They can use your Safer Place card to contact someone else for you if it is not something they can help with.
Where are the Safe Places?
Safer Places is running in Winchester, Bishops Waltham and Alresford as well as in other parts of Hampshire. Safe Places have a sticker in the window or have the logo displayed to let you know they are a Safe Place.
Safe Places are all places that are open to the public such as shops, offices
or public buildings.
