Home / Shopping



Visiting shopping environments can be a challenging experience for a person with autism.

The Buckinghamshire Safe Place scheme provides reassurance to vulnerable people, and to their families and carers, so that they have a means to alert someone of any potential risk or emergency – if they are out alone. Consequently, having access to a ‘Safe Place’  will help vulnerable people lead independent lives and feel safe in Chiltern and South Bucks.

The programme is co-ordinated by Buckinghamshire County Council’s Community Safety team with support from Thames Valley Police and local voluntary organisations.
