Stay Safe card
The Stay Safe card was developed so that vulnerable people can get support in the community.
The cards hold information about the card holder:
- Health concerns
- Communication issues
- Helpful contact details for friends and family
- Contact instructions if the police are required
The cards can be shown at any point; vulnerable people may feel scared and isolated when they are out on their own. They could be lost or just in need of some advise.
The card holder can go anywhere that a Ďstay safeí sign is shown and seek support. These can be information points, shops or a police station. Alternatively the cards can simply be shown to members of the public.
Stay Safe cards were identified as an opportunity by Speaking Upís Cambridgeshire Parliaments and Youth Parliaments. Members of the parliament identified that they didnít feel safe when they were out and about on their own.
The Stay Safe cards have been developed in partnership with the Speaking Up projects by Cambridgeshire County Councils Childrenís and Young Peoples Disability Team as a result of the Aiming High initiative, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Safety of Vulnerable Adults (SOVA).
