Safer Places Schemes are developing all over England through the goodwill of businesses, organisations and the staff working within them.

Joining the scheme draws appreciation from vulnerable people, their families and support workers and from the public.

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