Safe Place is a simple scheme to help vulnerable people to stay safe while out and about in Hull. The scheme is for people who - 

  • have learning disabilities or difficulties
  • have dementia 
  • need support or assistance whilst in public

But anyone who is feeling vulnerable, scared, confused or lost are able to access the scheme and ask for help.

Apply for a members card

You can apply for a self help card by emailing safeplace@hullcc.gov.uk.

Members of the scheme carry the card which contains their details and who to contact. This is often a family member, carer or social worker.
