Keep Safe Places
What is a Keep Safe Place?
Keep Safe Places are places that help people feel safer when they are out and about in the community knowing there is somewhere to go for help if they need it.
The Keep Safe Places project is known all over the country. It aims to help people feel confident and safe.
People can sometimes become targets for bullying and can feel intimidated and frightened when they leave their home. In some cases this can prevent them from going out.
