Sheffield Safe Places
What is Sheffield Safe Places?
Sheffield Safe Places is a scheme for adults who may feel unsafe or be vulnerable whilst getting out and about in Sheffield. It is funded by the Sheffield Adult Safeguarding Partnership and run by Heeley City Farm.
Safe Places are shops or other public buildings where people can go if they need help whilst out in Sheffield. Staff at the Safe Place will help the person, give them somewhere safe to sit and can help them by ringing a carer or friend for them.
Safe Places have a sticker in the window and can be found on the map here https://www.safeplaces.org.uk/member-schemes/sheffield/
Members receive a Safe Places card to write a carer or friend’s details and any other helpful information on it. This can be carried round and shown to Safe Places staff if members need help.
To sign up and receive a Safe Places card, members can apply online. More information about Sheffield Safe Places can be found at https://www.sheffieldsafeplaces.co.uk/
