Safe Places Schemes are spreading across England. This is in thanks to the support and kindness of businesses, organisations, and their staff.

By joining the scheme, you earn gratitude from:

  • vulnerable individuals
  • their families
  • support workers
  • the public

Your business would receive positive publicity by demonstrating that you exercise social responsibility. All Safe Places within the district are listed on the Wakefield Council website.

    accessible, safe and comfortable
  • staffed by at least 2 people at any one time

Apply to become a Safe Place

If you are or want to become a Safe Place you can request a physical information pack.

Information within the pack (including short film clips on a DVD) is suitable for staff training. Contact us for more details.


For a limited period, training can be delivered on site. This training is delivered by enthusiastic volunteers who are living with learning disabilities and dementia supported by a support worker.
