Call for businesses to register as a Safe Place in Henley

Alert message sent 08/02/2018 08:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Businesses in Henley-on-Thames are being encouraged to sign up to a new scheme to help provide a safe place to go if someone is feeling lost, worried or threatened.

‘Safe Places’ launches in Henley this March.  Under the scheme, a vulnerable person can enter a participating location where trained staff will offer help to keep them safe. 

Retailers, charities and other venues can register an interest in becoming a Safe Place by emailing South Oxfordshire District Council’s Community Safety team at or by calling 01235 422593. 

Participating locations will be invited to a special training session on Monday 26 February or 8 Thursday March at Henley Fire Station, with 45-minute slots available at 10am, 12:30pm and 5:30pm.

Once a member of staff has attended the training the location will receive an orange and yellow window sticker and can start supporting the Safe Places network.  They will also be added to the Safe Places map - and mobile phone app.

Cllr Elizabeth Gillespie, Cabinet Member for Housing and Environment at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “We’ve already received a great response to Safe Places in Wallingford and Didcot with 27 locations signed up. 

“This scheme provides vital support to those who are feeling vulnerable in our town centres, so it is only right that we extend it to more areas of the district and I urge retailers, charities and other organisations in Henley to register as a ‘Safe Place’.”
