The Safe Places scheme has been set up in association with local shops, organisations and businesses throughout Monmouthshire who have offered to be a safe place for people with disabilities if something has gone wrong whilst accessing the community. The shops are recognisable by the Safe Places logo in the shop window, all individuals who sign up to the scheme will be given a key fob where they can put their name and the name of someone to be contacted if they need help in the community.
