Staying safe

Here's how you can help keep yourself, or someone you care about safe.

Report abuse

If you are concerned that you or someone you know may be a victim of abuse or neglect, you should report it.

Keep Safe scheme

Many places in Essex run a Keep Safe scheme, where the venues display a yellow 'Keep Safe' sticker which means they will allow someone in need of help to make a telephone call from the venue.

The scheme is free to join if you are a vulnerable adult aged 16 or over.
Request your Keep Safe membership pack.

Whether you are a victim of hate crime, have witnessed an incident you believe to be a hate crime, or you are a third party to an incident that could be a hate crime, go to Stop Hate UK and report it.
