'Safe Places' Map of Greenwich
This link https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1cFCJuq9xEDBP8OnaVNkg23ABi1w&ll=51.475657228720436%2C0.01257843446944662&z=12is … is a map of the (so far) 28 'Safe Places' in our borough where people with Learning Disabilities can go if they feel scared, lost or unsafe while out and about.
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.
With funding from MOPAC (The Mayors Office for Policing and Crime) and support from Greenwich Council and the Metropoliton Police we have set up a Safe Places Scheme in Greenwich.
A Safe Place is somewhere like a shop, café 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.
If you'd like to join this great initiative get in touch with Advocacy in Greenwich
Advocacy in Greenwich offer: 1 to 1 advocacy, self advocacy groups, accessible training about rights for people with a learning disability, accessible training for staff that work in services, volunteering and paid work opportunities for people with a learning disability and the chance for people to speak up for themselves or other people with a learning disability and help to make services better
AiG also work with people with a learning disability to help services look at what they are doing well and what they can change.
