SafeZone – Volunteering from ACE Productions on Vimeo.

What is SafeZone?

SafeZone is a fully adapted and equipped, bright yellow single decker bus. Staffed completely by volunteers, it’s a place where you can find help on Friday and Saturday nights in Edinburgh. It’s free, non-judgmental and open to anyone who becomes vulnerable while in the city centre on weekends.

What does SafeZone do? They provide:

·         Support

·         Advice

·         First Aid

·         Welfare support to ensure the visitor gets home safely

Whatever problem you have, SafeZone can offer help –

If you get lost, if you or your friends need first aid due to an accident, alcohol or drugs, are roofless for the night, have been assaulted or suffered domestic abuse, needing someone to talk to or even just need somewhere warm and safe to wait for a taxi.

They can help you straight away or signpost you to other services.

Just drop by the bus, call them on 079 2070 6568 or ask bar staff, community police officers, and Taxi Marshalls or Street pastors to contact us for you.

Where is it?

SafeZone can be found at Cathedral Lane, by the Omni Centre from 10pm until 4am, every Friday and Saturday night.
