What are Safe Strangers?
A safer stranger is a grown-up who is working at a job which helps people. Safe Strangers will usually be wearing a uniform. Safe strangers could be police officers, traffic wardens, shopkeepers, check-out assistants, and others.
What is NOT a safe Stranger?
Stranger Danger is a grown up, that you do not know. It could be a person in a car that is following you and you don’t know who they are. It could be a stranger that talks to you at the park, who you have never met before. It could be a grown-up who says they are a friend of mummy or daddies, but you don’t know who they are. These are all examples of Stranger Danger.
When would you need help from a Safe Stranger?
If you get lost, or feel unsafe, and there is no adult around that you know and trust, look for a safe stranger who you can ask for help. If you can't see a safe stranger outside, look for a safe building you can go into, to ask for help from the people who work there.
Do you know what a Safe Building is?
A safe building could be a bank, post offices, libraries, Doctors Surgery, local shops/supermarkets, leisure centres, and other well-known buildings where you live. This is where you can find a number of Safe Strangers if you ever need help.
