An individual can call the Safe Places number if they find themselves in a crisis situation, such as if they are lost, feel scared or upset, and don’t know what to do, or if they have been a victim of crime.
They can also visit a Safe Places building for help. All police stations with enquiry offices are Safe Places and in the near future some council offices will also be included. Safe Places buildings can be identified by the Safe Places window sticker. Find your nearest police station here.
The Safe Places service has no age limit and is open to anyone who resides or frequents the Avon and Somerset force area, with communication difficulties such as dementia or a learning disability.
