Shrewsbury's Safe Places

Safe Places provides a network of short-term safe havens for people who require assistance and additional support when out and about in the community.
Floro lounge

Safe Places is a community-led initiative supported by Shropshire Council, Telford & Wrekin Council and West Merica Police.

The aim of ‘Safe Places’ is to provide vulnerable individuals with a number of places that they know they can go to and immediately receive support and understanding about their issues. This includes people with learning disabilities or those who live with anxiety attacks or dementia.
