The safe places scheme aims to help vulnerable people if they feel scared or at risk while they are out and about in the community and need support. If someone is feeling lost, anxious, confused, bullied, abused or harassed they can seek assistance in a safe place.
The scheme is coordinated by the council's community safety team, in partnership with Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue.
Individuals can carry an 'I need help' card to provide staff with their emergency contact details. These cards are available, along with further information about the scheme upon request - simply contact us.
