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.
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.
