People with a learning disability in Greenwich have said they can feel scared, intimidated and unsafe when out in the community and do not know where to go for help if they need it.
We have received funding from MOPAC (The Mayors Office for Policing and Crime) to set up a Safe Places Scheme in Greenwich. A Safe Place is somewhere like a shop, café, pub or community building that will display a window sticker so people with a learning disability know they can get help in there if they need it.
A group of people are meeting weekly to get the scheme going.
More information coming soon.
