Keep safe with Safe Places

Southampton City Council has signed up to the Safe Places National Network, which offers a Safe Place for people whilst out in public.

A Safe Place can be any type of premises, including shops, cafés or buildings that can be accessed by the public. They act as a temporary refuge for adults and young people who may feel scared, lost, threatened or at risk and in need of support.

You can find a Safe Place by:

  • Looking for a Safe Places logo sticker in the shop window or door
  • Searching on the Safe Places map 
  • Or by downloading the free Safe Places app on the App Store or Google Play

There are some safe places in Portswood eg Waitrose, KFC and the Post Office – see the Safe Places map, but also October Books has recently signed up as part of the safe space network.
