What is the Keep Safe Scheme?
The Keep Safe Scheme aims to support people with vulnerabilities to get help in an emergency when out and about.
For example, a support worker, family member or friend could provide information to the Keep Safe scheme about a vulnerable person. If that person needs support, a member of the emergency services would be able to login to the system to learn more about the individual. This could include medication required, mobile numbers, a photograph and social and communication needs etc.
Compiling information in advance saves time later
By storing information in advance, you can get the right kind of support to someone that needs it quicker.
With so much at stake, there really is no place for those withholding important information.
By giving all local professionals access to a collaborative network, everyone is better placed to address the needs of the vulnerable people they’re connected with. When partners work together, they can build a more comprehensive picture of an individual’s situation and ultimately improve outcomes.
Online forms speed up the process of compiling information.
There are various forms of the Keep Safe scheme in operation around the UK. Many of these require a carer to complete a paper form which is then entered into a system manually. With the Empowering Communities Keep Safe product, the forms are electronic and can be completed online. The information is then sent directly into the police/scheme database, which saves administration time.

Tried and tested
The type of information sharing [provided by Empowering-Communities’ products] allows us to anticipate an offenders likely behaviour in custody and also enables our Offender Supervisors to identify programmes and courses that need to be undertaken in custody which are designed to lower an offenders risk of re-offending.

There are some vulnerable groups who need additional support to help them manage the conversion to Universal Credit. This new way of working is a fantastic step forwards and will save both practitioners and residents a great deal of time.
COUNCILLOR SARAH RUSSELL / DERBY CITY COUNCIL
An offender was being released from prison and my team had concerns that the offender would try to make contact with the victim, potentially affecting their safety. A PCSO made a note on E-CINS that the offender was due to be leaving prison within the next few days. We would not normally be privy to that information, but because it was flagged on the Victim’s profile, we were able to quickly contact the victim and hold a face to face meeting to assess the level of risk to them.
