Safe Places Scheme
Safe Places is a scheme which helps vulnerable people deal with difficult situations that make them feel scared or at risk whilst they are out and about in the community.
Hate crime is a criminal offence where the victim is targeted because of their race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability or gender identity.
