Scheme will offer safe haven for vulnerable adults in March

March Lions are helping FACET by supporting a new Safe Place Scheme to help vulnerable adults and those with learning difficulties through the purchase of identifying cards which will be carried by the adults.
Shops and other premises around the area will be encouraged to join the scheme and display posters/signs to say that they will provide a safe place if the person becomes distressed.
The card will have the person’s name on it and a telephone number to contact so that the person can be supported and, if necessary, collected.
