Did you know that Community House is a “Safe Place” provider for North Yorkshire County Council?
A Safe Place is where anyone who might need a little bit more help and support when they are out and about in the community can call in to get assistance.
Members of the scheme carry a “keep safe” card with contact details, so that someone who knows them best can come and take them home if needed. We, as the Safe Place, make sure the person is safe and feels comfortable until their contact arrives.
“Sometimes I have panic attacks and knowing that there are safe places to go to helps me to feel confident to get out and about. I think safe places will help many other people to feel confident to keep going out and being independent.” – Safe Places member.
