The “Safe Place” scheme makes sure that everyone visiting Wrexham can have a safe place where they can go to when if they’re feeling anxious, panicked, stressed or particularly vulnerable. Local businesses sign up to take part in the scheme and then display a sign that registered users can recognise and know they will be able to get help from those inside.

It gives people the security of knowing they, or people they care about, have a safe place to go in times of need. The safe place can be a shop, pub, library, council building or any place that is publicly available. A sticker will identify the place as a “Safe Place” and it will also appear in the national database.

It is run by SWS (Standards of Wrexham services) and is part of a national scheme.
