The National scheme designates locations as recognisable SAFE PLACES that will provide a safe environment for vulnerable people or anyone who might find themselves needing help or support whilst out and about the town.

The scheme has been set up by Calne Community Safety Forum in conjunction with Calne Town Council, Wiltshire Council, PCC, Victim Support and Wiltshire Age UK and is a partnership between local businesses, services and voluntary groups, overseen by the Wiltshire Community Safety Partnership.

The scheme has strong support from retailers, businesses and organisations in and around Calne. It will provide a valuable community service for our more vulnerable residents. When someone uses a SAFE PLACE they will be listened to, reassured, supported and offered time and a safe place to wait. People can choose to carry an ICE (in case of emergency) contact card which can be obtained from the Safe Places Scheme and local libraries or support cards such as Dementia Help Cards.

Participating shops and businesses will display the above A5 sticker in a prominent window position, and Calne Safety Forum volunteers will visit local groups to promote the scheme and maintain the relationship between users and supporters.

Our thanks go to the following shops and businesses who have already signed up to the scheme:
