About Us

The Safer Places Scheme is a voluntary scheme that aims to assist vulnerable people with learning disabilities, autism and dementia to feel safer when travelling independently.

The confidence to travel independently assists vulnerable people to maintain their independent living skills and helps with their wellbeing.

Premises that are open to the public such as shops, offices, stations and public buildings are asked to become Safer Places. Safer Places are recognised by the Safer Places logo.

Vulnerable people who are members of the Safer Places Scheme carry a Safer Places Card with their name and the details of up to three people that can be contacted in the event that support is required.

If a vulnerable person arrives feeling unwell, confused, lost, or having been a victim of crime staff within a Safer Place are asked to assist by contacting one of the people named on the back of the Safer Places Card or the emergency services and allow the vulnerable person to wait on the premises until the named person or police/ambulance arrive.

You can contact the Safer Places scheme on 0345 8 503 503
