OUT & ABOUT AT NIGHT

  • Make sure that your carer knows where you are at all times (day and night).
  • Add to your mobile phone number list this name ICE (in case of emergency) and insert the phone number of your carer.
  • Where possible, always travel with a group of people you know well.
  • Keep to well-lit areas.
  • Stay alert at all times.

TRAVELLING ALONE

  • If you are travelling on your own, stay alert to your surroundings, no matter what time of day.
  • Be aware that electronic devices such as mobile phones can be a distraction and may cause you to become less alert.
  • Keep to well-frequented places and avoid dead-ends and poorly-lit areas.

MONEY AND VALUABLES

  • Always keep money and valuables in a safe location e.g.: zipped bag or backpack.
