Safe Places Scheme

A Safe Place is somewhere where vulnerable people can go for help and support, if they feel upset or threatened, when they're out and about in Herefordshire.

There are currently over 50 Safe Places located across the county, including Bromyard, Hereford, Kington, Ledbury, Leominster, Ross-on-Wye and Yarpole, ranging from local shops and businesses to churches and libraries.

All designated Safe Places will display the above yellow Safe Place sticker in an obvious and visible location, normally on the front window or door.

Find a Safe Place

There are two ways you can access the full list of Safe Places in Herefordshire.  You can either visit the Herefordshire Mencap website or download the free My Town Worcestershire app, which is available for Android devices from the Google Play Store (this is a Worcestershire app, but it also includes the locations for Herefordshire too). 

Using the scheme

If you know someone who might want to use a Safe Place, please contact Rose Hunt at Herefordshire Mencap on 07969 524476 for an 'I need help' card.  The card has space for the name and contact details of two people who know the person well, who can be contacted if needed.
