Safe In Town

What is the safe in town scheme and who can use it?

  • The safe in town in West Cheshire scheme is to help vulnerable people feel safe when they are out and about in town.
  • Safe in town is for: Disabled adults and young people (aged 14+).
  • You can carry a safe in town card with the telephone number of someone to contact (e.g your relative or carer) if you need help.
  • People sometimes feel unsafe when they are out in town. The scheme helps vulnerable people to develop confidence and independence. With a safe in town card you can go into shops, cafes and businesses where you see the safe in town sticker and know you will be safe. There will be someone there who will call the contact number on your card for help if you need it.
  • Why join the safe in town scheme?

  • It can help you to feel safe in town because you know there are safe places where you can go and get help if you need it. It can also give your family or carers peace of mind.
