We would like your views on the Safe Places Scheme




ConsultationWarwickshire County Council launched the Safe Places Scheme following a consultation with people with learning disabilities.  50% of those people who took part in the consultation said that they had been a victim of hate crime.  Safe Places are community places (e.g shop, community centre) where you can go to get help if you feel unsafe or at risk when you are out and about.

Over the past 12 months, the Safe Places Scheme has been successfully implemented across the five district and boroughs of Warwickshire with 85 community organisations and retailers registered as Safe Places, supporting people to feel safe within their local communities.

We are evaluating the scheme during November and December 2014 to see what is working well and what we can do to improve it.

Find full details of this consultation here.

There are a number of ways that you can put forward your views:

  • Complete the General Public Survey aimed at the General Public, Service Providers, Councillors, Local Voluntary & Community Organisations, Health & Social Care Staff etc to gauge public opinion on the scheme and obtain views on future developments for the scheme.
  • Adults with Learning Disabilities Survey for people with Learning Disabilities, as the scheme is currently aimed at people with learning disabilities, we would like to gather feedback and gauge views on the current scheme and obtain views on future developments.
  • Paper copies of the survey are also available by contacting lesleylangdon@warwickshire.gov.uk or telephone01926 742536.
  • Attend the last public event on Friday 14th November 10am – 2.30pm at Nuneaton Library, Church Street, Nuneaton, CV11 4DR.
