What is the Keep Safe Scheme?

  • The Keep Safe Scheme has been set up to help disabled individuals that may feel unsafe or have difficulty going out on their own.

How it works:

  • Anyone who lives in Perth & Kinross and has a disability or may need help can have a Keep Safe card
  • The card has their own personal details on it which they complete on the application form.
  • People will carry the card with them and if they need help for any reason such as they have had a fall, they need to sit down for 5 minutes, they feel unsafe or they would like someone to call a contact for them, then they would go into a participating venue who would be able to help them.

Involvement of the business

  • Participating businesses would display a Keep Safe sticker to make people aware that they are part of the scheme.
  • Training would be provided to staff to let them know about the scheme.
  • If someone comes in with a Keep Safe card the appropriate help should be provided. This could vary from having a seat for 5 minutes, giving directions or phoning an emergency contact.
  • The police will conduct a check on the premises, to ensure the venue is a safe place. (Please note this check will be carried out on the premises and not the lead contact for the venue). 
  • An accessibility check will also be carried out to ensure that every cardholder is able to access the venue should they need to.
  • Annual checks will take place to ensure everything is working smoothly.
