Keeping Safe Project

MacIntyre has been delivering the Keeping Safe Project, supported and funded by Derbyshire County Council, since 2009. The project aims to support adults with a learning disability to recognise and report Hate Crime and enhance their community safety.

The project has a team of Keeping Safe Champions who are people with a learning disability who deliver free training workshops. The team regularly delivers workshops on the following topics:

  • Internet Safety – this can be to a small group or one to one
  • Hate Crime
  • Friend or Pretend Friend
  • Keeping Safe when out and about – including using cash machines, carrying our belongings safely, getting taxis safely
  • How to handle bogus callers
