We all have a right to be safe and feel safe in the community we live and I fully support the Safe Places Scheme. Working together with the local community Safe Places aims to provide individuals with a learning difficulty a trusted person or place they can go to in a time of need. In the world be live in it is all too easy to become consumed in our own issues, paying little consideration to others. This scheme allows communities to come together to help others.

As a parent of a child with additional needs it is so reassuring that there is an organisation such as Safe Places. I think it will prove invaluable for vulnerable people, giving them confidence whilst out, safe in the knowledge that should something happen, they can find the nearest Safe Place and be put into contact with someone who can assist them.
The Safe Places scheme plays a significant role to help vulnerable people feel safe and supported. Humberside Police have spent a great deal of time working with local councils and various businesses to fully understand what makes people feel safe. It is not just the responsibility of one organisation, it is that of many and we can achieve so much more by working together. Safe Places gives vulnerable people the confidence to approach someone who will look after them.

All vulnerable people in our community deserve to be safe and to feel safe. Having the opportunity to live independent lives is a significant part of this. The Safe Places schemes operate throughout Yorkshire and the UK helps this happen and I fully support this excellent initiative.
