Safety first

Knowing how to keep yourself safe when out enjoying your summer is always important. These simple tips can help you to stay safe:

  • Be aware of your surroundings and move away from situations that concern or worry you
  • Carry a charged mobile and know who to call in an emergency
  • Make sure somebody knows where you're going and when you'll be back
  • Pre-plan your route and transport so you know how you're getting there and back

Crucial: If you feel nervous about a situation, head to somewhere where there are more people like a main road or shopping centre – and remember to wear your mask if you need to go into a shop to ask for help. If you or anyone else is in immediate danger always call 999.

  • Speak with somebody you trust
  • Ensure you get fresh and daily exercise
  • Stay connected with loved ones
