We have come across a little gem, introduced by Leicester City/County Council, whereby any person NOT feeling SAFE when out and about can simply make their way to a “KEEP SAFE PLACE” venue that have now been set up especially for people feeling vulnerable when out.
Now this is a marvellous idea as we larys have no voices, no means of calling for help, no means of making that emergency phone call to family or friends-we are literally at the mercy of any that would deem to take advantage of our silent situation (and believe me, there are some that would!)
This is the badge/emblem/sign to look for in Leicester. Once inside you will find a friendly face, access to a telephone and best of all….. reassurance!
Hit this link and scroll down to espy all the “KEEP SAFE PLACE“ venues in Leicester City cerntre or indeed any of:
- Oadby and Wigston
- Hinckley and Bosworth
- North West Leicestershire
- Leicester City
In other words, just because you haven’t got a voice it doesn’t mean that you are alone. There are people out there waiting to help you should you find yourself ‘stranded’, suffering from a panic attack, feeling overwhelmed by the environment. These centres are a bit like the life jacket thrown to the drowning man/woman. Make use of them, don’t be afraid to ask for help. They will soon understand that you are a lary and will provide pen & paper for you to communicate-most importantly….. YOU ARE NOT ON YOUR OWN anymore!
