Safeguarding Week – Safer Places

Course overview

The Safer Places Scheme in Wakefield District has been running since February 2015. It aims to encourage vulnerable people and some young people (who are able to travel independently) to live more fulfilling lives by becoming more confident about travelling independently and feeling safer whilst alone in public places. In the scheme we have public buildings that are designated Safer Places and a register of vulnerable people who have applied to be members of the scheme. Members carry a card with contact details of next of kin. The scheme also makes use of a smart phone App.
