People First Forum is a charity run by and for people with learning disabilities. The charity works to keep vulnerable residents safe.
The charity has a 'Safe Places' scheme which encourages shops and organisations to offer a safe haven for people with learning disabilities should they feel in danger, lost or unwell. These venues offer a refuge by displaying the 'Safe Place' sticker in their window.
See the People First Forum website for a list of safe places in the local area.
Lots of other guides on keeping safe can be found in the Keeping Safe section of their website. Guides include:
- Hate Crime Factsheet
- Keep Safe Stop Abuse
- Keeping Safe in Bournemouth and Poole
For travel outside of the local area, the Safe Places National Network website is a useful resource.
