Safe Place - Elmbridge

Description

A Safe Place helps vulnerable people if they are feeling scared, confused, upset or anxious while out and about and need support right away. The scheme offers a safe way for vulnerable residents to alert someone about a potential risk or challenge, if they are out on their own.


The Elmbridge safe place scheme is primarily designed to support:

  • people with memory loss

  • people with learning disabilities

  • people with physical disabilities or reduced mobility

  • people with autism/autism spectrum disorder

  • people with mental health concerns

  • people who are deaf/ hard of hearing

  • people who are blind or partially sighted

  • older people

A safe place logo will be visible in a window or on a door to help vulnerable residents identify a registered venue or 'safe place'.
