Keep Safe Places
A keep safe place is somewhere a person can go to when the feel unsafe, vulnerable or upset. Having venues locally can help people feel more confident and safe when they are out, knowing that assistance is available if required.
The following are Keep Safe Places within the Harborough District:
- Broughton Astley library
- Lutterworth Library
- Market Harborough Library
- Fleckney Library
If someone visits a keep safe place, and either says or looks like they need a help, a member of staff should offer to assist and if the person wishes, they will then make a referral to First Contact Plus.
First contact plus is a service that connects people with the most appropriate support across Leicestershire, be it housing, health, living independently, money advice, work or security. You can self refer at https://firstcontactplus.referral.org.uk/selfrefer/
