Safe Places National Network

Our free-to-use Safe Places Apps show all the Safe Places in districts that have decided to make the Apps available. You can see which districts have chosen to make the Safe Places Apps available on our Member Schemes page.

They are free-to-use by anyone with a smart phone and are available to download now from both the App Store and Google play

The apps have a function called 'Get me to my nearest Safe Place Now' (Panic button) which immediately directs you to the nearest open Safe Place. If no Safe Place is located within a 15-minute walk it will automatically offer to call the non-emergency 101 number to get help over the phone.

They are currently being developed to be voice activated so those who may traditionally struggle to use an App or those with visual impairments can be directed to a Safe Place by simply talking to their phones.

  • Can be used proactively to find and visit Safe Places as part of the Safety in the Community 'Life Skills' curriculum
  • Can be used to encourage people to get out and about and engage with their community
  • All registered Safe Place details are available at the touch of a button
  • The Apps only direct the user to open Safe Places
  • Are an effective way to reach out to isolated people already living independently who may already have and use a smart phone
  • Can be used for a Safe Places ‘treasure hunt’ competition. Entrants details used to evidence exactly how many people are discovering Safe Places and when
  • Treasure hunt can be in different parts of the local area to encourage vulnerable users to visit and experience new places
  • The Apps can be used by SEND college students who 'volunteer for work experience' as part of their course to help identify and audit Safe Places for the scheme operators
  • Venue Audits provide figures of how many individual Safe Place visits there have been and when they were made
  • Are useful for Girl Guides when completing the Safe Places part of the new 'Be Prepared' badge
  • Are being used by Police Cadets as part of a 'Volunteer Work Placement – Safe Places Auditor' program which contributes to their Duke of Edinburgh Award

Voice Activation Settings

As different phones have their own settings they will need to be 'set-up' to enable voice activation to work. We will add the necessary directions for the various phones after the voice activation has been completed.
