The safer places scheme supports people with a learning disability or autism in our local communities. We work alongside VoiceAbility and the Speak Out Council to support safer places in Cambridgeshire.

How the safer places scheme works

A ‘safer place’ is a local business or organisation that volunteers to be a designated place of safety for people seeking refuge in times of stress, threat or vulnerability.

Safer places display stickers in their windows to tell people they are taking part in the scheme.

Stay safe card

A person needing help can then show their stay safe card to a member of staff who will take appropriate action to help them.

The card tells people exactly what to do to help the person. This includes their name, the contact details of the person they need to get in touch with and what to do if you cannot get hold of them.
