Safe Places

Safe Places helps people with a learning disability and Autism if they feel worried or are at risk while they are out and about in the community. They can go to public places, like shops, cafes and job centres, which have a Safe Place sticker in their window and ask staff there for help.

People with a learning disability and Autism carry a Safe Place card. This has their emergency contact details on them, which they can show to staff in the Safe Place.

Healthy Cornwall manages the scheme, whish is part of the Safe Places National Network. Devon and Cornwall Police and Cornwall People First support scheme.
