S.D.A.I.S. Join Safe Place Scheme

Stockton and District Advice and Information Service have joined the Teeswide Safe Place Scheme.  The Scheme provides places you can go if you don’t feel safe or need some help; a place in the community you know is there in case you need it.    

What is a Safe Place?

  • A place people can go if they don’t feel safe or need some help
  • A place in the community that people know is there in case they need it.  This can help them to be more confident to go out independently.

How Can Safe Places Help?

Safe Place Scheme venues can provide:

  • A point of contact for anyone who needs it
  • A safe, friendly and welcoming environment where people feel able to ask for help
  • A place where someone can rest if they feel unwell, anxious, upset, afraid or lost
  • A place where people feel listened to
  • Staff who can offer help and advice or help the person call someone they know

Who is a Safe Place for?

Anyone who might be, or feel, vulnerable.  This can include people with:

  • A physical- or learning disability
  • Autism
  • Dementia                                                                                                     

…or someone suffering from abuse or neglect.
