Get Up and Go

Get Up and Go sessions for young people are offered at this office. Get Up and Go is a volunteer-led programme using creative and physical activities to build self-confidence and self-belief.

The aim of Get Up and Go is to support young people affected by homelessness on their path to independent living, training and employment.

Safe Places

The North East office is also a Safe Place. A Safe Place is a building like a shop, a bank, a community centre or a church that displays the Safe Place sticker in the window. The staff in these buildings know how to help members of the Safe Places scheme.

Is the Safe Place scheme for me?

The Safe Place scheme is for you if you feel unsafe or vulnerable when you are out and about in North Tyneside. You may have a learning disability, be living with dementia or feeling nervous and need support because something has happened to you which
makes you feel unsafe.

How does the Safe Place scheme work?

As a member of the Safe Place scheme you receive a card and keyring. You need to add your name to the card and the telephone numbers of two people you trust. Make sure that the people you have chosen know that they may be contacted if you
ever use the Safe Place scheme.

Step 1:
Look for a place that displays the Safe Place window sticker

Step 2:
Go inside, ask for help and show the staff your card or keyring

Step 3:
Safe Place contacts someone you trust or the Police if they need to.
