Safe Places aims to support vulnerable people to feel safe when they are out and about in Sheffield. If someone needs help, for example they are lost, ill or frightened, then they can enter the nearest safe place to get help.
- Safe Places members are sent a pack containing a Keep Safe Card. Members should write the name and phone number of a helper or carer on this card and carry it round with them when they are out in Sheffield. If they need help, they can then enter a Safe Place, explain the problem or show their Keep Safe Card.
- Stickers with the Safe Places logo are placed in the windows of all the registered safe places. Safe Places can also be found on the map on the website. The staff or volunteers in safe places will assist anyone who goes to them for help.
- Staff will contact the helper on the Keep Safe Card and support the person. They can also help by calling the emergency services if necessary.
- If someone has experienced hostility because of their disability then they may have experienced a hate incident or hate crime. Safe Places can support the person to report this to the police or Hate Crime UK.
