About Us

In 2011 Calderdale Council and its partners launched the Safe Places Scheme to increase the safety and confidence of vulnerable people when they visit Halifax town centre.

The Safe Places scheme means that busy public places can offer support to vulnerable adults who may need help.

Buildings displaying the Safe Places poster include:

  • Halifax Bus Station
  • Central Library and Archive
  • Calderdale College.

These public places are demonstrating that they are a safe haven and can offer support if an individual is distressed, being harassed, bullied, or is feeling unwell.

Contact cards with the Safe Places logo have been issued to people with learning difficulties so that they can be carried when out and about in town. If they need to call into a Safe Place and need assistance, staff will help them, ring the number, and keep them safe until help arrives.
