About Keep Safe

Keep Safe is a national initiative developed by the community-based charity I Am Me in partnership with Police Scotland. 

The purpose of the initiative is to establish a network of Safe Places within communities across Scotland.  The scheme is particularly aimed at people who may feel more vulnerable when out in the community due to; a sensory impairment, physical disability, learning disability, mental health issue or frailty due to age.

Keep Safe Premises

There are already a number of Safe Places operating throughout Scotland, these include; shops, cafés, libraries, shopping centres and recreational facilities.  All Keep Safe Premises are screened by Police Scotland and trained staff are available to offer assistance.   All approved Keep Safe Premises display a sticker on their frontage to indicate their participation in the scheme.

Keep Safe Card & App

In addition the Keep Safe Scotland app enables users to quickly identify the nearest Keep Safe premises, contact the police or plan a route.  The app is free to download for Android and iOS.

Clackmannanshire & Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership have recently begun rolling out the initiative across both local authority areas.  Please click on the link for a list of Keep Safe Premises in this area.

If you would like further information on becoming a Keep Safe member or utilising the scheme please contact us.
