Derbyshire Safe Place Scheme

The Safe Place Scheme is part of our hate crime / keeping safe project. It's supported by Derbyshire police, Derbyshire Police, Trading Standards and the Derbyshire Learning Disability Partnership Board.


Derbyshire Safe Place Scheme. Keep safe with safe places

A Safe Place is somewhere you can go if you feel scared, are lost or need help when you are out and about.

Safe Places are public buildings in towns and communities across Derbyshire, such as libraries, shops, pharmacies and GP surgeries. They have stickers in their windows so you can see that they are part of the scheme and know you can go in and ask for help if you need to.

Find a safe place

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, applications for new safe places and keep safe cards were suspended. We apologise for any problems this may have caused.

Existing safe places will continue to be places of safety for people to utilise. The scheme is currently being reviewed with the hope of relaunching in 2023.

We'll keep this page updated and will promote any developments as soon as they occur. If you require any further information tel: 01629 532469, leave a message and we will get back to you.

Keep Safe Cards

Keep Safe Cards are available to all adults who live in Derbyshire aged over 18. You can also apply if you have a learning disability and are aged over 16 years.

The card has space for you to write your name, the name and phone number of a family member or carer and anything else a person might need to know about you.

If you're out and about and you need help, you can take the card to a Safe Place to ask for help.

How a safe place helps

The staff at a safe place will:

  • find you somewhere safe to wait
  • use the information on your Keep Safe Card to call your family, friends or support staff
  • call the police or an ambulance if it is an emergency
