What is the Safe Spaces Scheme?

The Safe Spaces Scheme provides a safe place indoors for anyone who may feel vulnerable, distressed or worried while out and about in West Bromwich town centre.

Safe Spaces are buildings in West Bromwich town centre such as shops, libraries and other organisations where you can go if you feel unsafe outside while you call and wait for a family member or friend, for example, to collect you or for the police to arrive. 

The Safe Spaces Scheme is supported by West Midlands Police and West Bromwich Business Improvement District.
