Staying safe

If you are going out and about, you want to feel safe and comfortable. Especially when you're trying something new. To feel safe and supported, take some simple steps:

  • plan where you would like go and how you are going to get there
  • take a mobile phone if you have one, and the phone number of someone you trust
  • take some money in case you need it and keep some in your wallet or purse and some in your pocket
  • take a personal attack alarm, if you have one
  • make sure everything your carrying in a safe place, like a bag or pocket
  • make sure someone you trust knows where you're going and when you'll be back
  • go out with a friend, or someone else you know and trust

You don't have to go out to have fun. The internet has loads of things to do. Don't forget about staying safe online though.
