We are a Safe Place

In August 2014 we were trained to become a Safe Place under Mencap Kirklees' Safer Places Scheme for vulnerable people. This means that we provide a safe haven for people to turn to should they need support for any reason such as losing a purse/bus pass, becoming disorientated/lost or being the victim of a crime. This means we are ready and willing to provide assistance to a vulnerable person should they need it. We display our Safe Places sign in the window which matches the picture on the members cards. For more information on this scheme please click here for the website or see graphic below.

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by West Yorkshire Police and other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

Carers, family members and friends can complete in advance, a form recording all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, a photograph etc.  In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the police to reduce the time taken in gathering this information.

The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia. You can access the form here.
