Keep Safe!

Posted: Tue, 20 Nov 2018 14:24 by Dawn Roache

As the frantic nature of Black Friday and Christmas shopping rapidly approaches, festive shoppers are reminded that "keep safe places" are available in busy retail areas across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

With darker nights now upon us as well, Leicestershire County Council is reminding residents a number of venues are available for anyone who feels overwhelmed, vulnerable, scared or distressed. More »

Stickers can be seen at the front of "keep safe places" (see photo attached) which include libraries and shops that have signed up to the scheme.

Staff of participating Keep Safe Places can offer basic support, including a place to sit down. They can also contact friends or relatives if necessary – or the emergency services if needed.

The initiative was developed by the county council in partnership with the police, city and district / borough councils, local community partnerships and Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland.

Council offices, police stations and libraries also provide Keep Safe cards which show the details of who to contact in an emergency, or medical assistance that may be needed.

Keep Safe Place users also have the option of being referred to First Contact, a multi-agency initiative that checks if people would benefit from a host of services and advice such as getting the right benefits, smoke alarms, help with their finances or support for carers.

To find your nearest Keep Safe Place or find out where to get a Keep Safe Card, look out for a window sticker/poster or visit http://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/find-a-keep-safe-place. » Less
