Vulnerable people in Whitehill & Bordon now have a ‘Safe Place’ to go if they are feeling overwhelmed or being bullied, abused or harassed.

The Safe Place scheme has been rolled out across Whitehill & Bordon under East Hampshire District Council’s Healthy New Town programme to make sure vulnerable people have somewhere they can feel safe.

There are currently seven ‘Safe Places’ in the town offering refuge to anyone who feels intimidated or at risk while they are out and about.

The scheme provides a place, with trained staff, for people to seek help or simply to just calm down and have some alone-time.

Easily recognisable by their bright yellow and red ‘Safe Place’ sticker, the Whitehill & Bordon Safe Places are:

  1. Tesco
  2. Quebec Café
  3. Forest Surgery
  4. Badgerswood Surgery
  5. Forest Community Centre
  6. The Phoenix Theatre & Arts Centre
  7. St Mark’s Church

Pick up your ‘Safe Places’ contact card from any of these businesses today!
