Keep Safe Scheme
Would you or someone you know benefit from the Keep Safe Scheme?
What is Keep Safe?
Keep Safe is a free scheme to help people feel safer when they are out in Castle Point. Keep Safe places such as shops, libraries and businesses in the town centres will let you use a telephone or will make a call on your behalf if you get into distress.
This might be if:
- You lose your phone
- You lose your wallet
- You feel ill or unsafe
How does it work?
When you join the scheme you will be given your own key fob to put the name and number of someone who can be contacted should you need them
Remember to carry it with you at all times
Where can I use my Keep Safe fob?
Keep Safe key fobs can be used in Canvey, Benfleet, Hadleigh and lots of other Essex towns. The Keep Safe places have stickers in their windows to help identify that they are part of the scheme. Visit www.keepsafeessex.org.uk for a map of Keep Safe venues in Essex, to help you plan a safer journey.
