We have re-launched the Safer in Town initiative which aims to protect and give confidence to vulnerable people when visiting St Helens town centre.
As part of the initiative, a number of town centre buildings including St Helens Town Hall, the Millennium Centre, St Helens Police Station and the Citadel Arts Centre have signed up as ‘safe haven’ venues where vulnerable people can visit if they require assistance, or if they have been involved in an accident or been the victim of crime.
Those who sign up to the free scheme will be able to identify a participating venue by looking out for a Safer in Town logo displayed around the building which they can than enter and present a Safer in Town card or keyring which contains emergency contact details.
Information and maps pinpointing where participating venues are located will also be displayed in the public notice board outside St Helens Town Centre for piece of mind.
For more information, or to sign up to Safer in Town, please call David Webster at St Helens CDP on 01744 453343
