We should all feel safe and secure wherever we live, helping us to be confident and happy.
However, many of us feel anxious, and even at risk, when we’re out and about, socialising with friends, or using public transport.
Some of us might even feel unsafe in our homes or online.
Increasing our awareness and understanding is one way to help us stay safe, and to know where to turn to if we have any concerns for ourselves or others.
Have a look through the ‘Keeping safe’ section for more information to help support yourself or someone you know.
If you are ever concerned about the immediate safety of someone, phone the police – dial 999.
