 Safe Places Header 850 x 400


Cumbria Police's ‘Safe Places’ scheme allows vulnerable people to seek help should they be confused, scared, lost or bullied. Staff are trained to assist  anyone who uses a Safe Place and training is available to individuals offering advice on how to keep safe whilst out and about. Safe Place cards are available to individuals and can be used as a communication tool when seeking support.

Safe Place cards (pictured below) are available to individuals from various organisations and can be used as a communication tool when seeking support.
