Lots of people feel unsafe at times in their local area; this might be because they have experienced crime or because they simply feel unsafe. For disabled people, older people and others who feel vulnerable this sometimes means they don’t go out at all. The Safe Places scheme enables people to feel more confident in accessing their local community. You can find out more about Safe Places by clicking on the white arrow in the image above.

Changing Our Lives facilitates the Safe Places scheme in Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Walsall and Birmingham. Feedback from individuals has shown that when people know where the local Safe Places are they feel more confident to go out, knowing that if they need help, there will be a Safe Place local to them.
