Tower House Pharmacy becomes a “Safe Place” for Vulnerable Members of the Community
(Posted on 11/07/14)
Vulnerable people who need assistance while they are out and about can now turn to a friendly face at Tower House Pharmacy thanks to a new scheme.
The scheme helps people with learning disabilities deal with any incident that takes place whilst they are out and about in the community. This could be anything from bullying or the person they are meeting failing to turn up.
A window sticker is displayed in Tower House Pharmacy identifying them as a Safe Place, and any vulnerable person who is signed up to the scheme carries an “I need help” card with the details of a trusted contact. The team at Tower House Pharmacy will be able to assist anyone who goes to them for help.
Tower House Pharmacy Manager Jonathan Wood said, “It is important for us as a pharmacy, but also as part of the community, to be part of this scheme. Our extended opening hours and location make us ideally placed to offer assistance to anyone who needs help”.
