Safe place

Safe Place is a simple scheme to help vulnerable people to stay safe while out and about in Hull. The scheme is largely for people who - 

  • have learning disabilities or difficulties
  • have dementia 
  • need support or require assistance whilst in public

However anyone who is feeling vulnerable, scared, confused or lost are able to access the scheme and ask for help

Apply for a members card

You can apply for a self help card by emailing safeplace@hullcc.gov.uk 

Individual members of the scheme carry the card which contains their details and who to contact. This is often a family member, carer or social worker

About the safe place

We are working with a range of organisations and businesses to create recognised environments where people can go knowing that they will be safe. These include -

  • banks
  • shop and cafes
  • libraries, sports and community centres
  • train and bus stations

Window stickers are to be displayed at the venues that are part of the scheme to show that they are a safe place to go

The scheme is a partnership involving a number of agencies, voluntary groups and supporters including -

  • Hull City Council
  • Humberside Police
  • Police Crime Commisioner
  • Hull Community Safety Partnership
  • St Stephens
  • CASE
  • Barnardos
  • Dementia Academy
