South Wales Police, Learning Disability Services and Mencap Cymru, have jointly developed a Keep Safe Card Scheme for anyone in the South Wales Police force area with a learning disability, mental health, dementia and/or communication need.
The scheme is designed to make people more aware of their personal safety, to encourage reporting of crime – especially hate crime – and to seek help if they need it. It will also help those providing assistance from us, to access support for you as a card holder, and to help us understand how we can make you feel safe.
If as a card holder, you need assistance, whether you are lost, a victim of crime or you are any situation that means you need some extra support, you can use the card to access this help. The card will hold basic information about you, such as how you prefer to be communicated with, any health issues and any emergency contacts such as your parents or carer.
