BATIAS Independent Advocacy Service is a charity providing different types of advocacy support to people with learning disabilities. On Friday 9th December BATIAS will be launching the Keep Safe Scheme in Thurrock in the Grays Town Centre.
The Keep Safe Scheme is a community safety scheme designed to offer support to vulnerable people when they are out in their community. BATIAS has been able to secure funding to provide this scheme for people with learning disabilities in the Thurrock area. Various shops and community centres have signed up to be ‘safe places’ for members of the scheme to be able to receive support if they need help while out in the community.
People with learning disabilities can sign up to join the scheme on the launch day by visiting the stall in Grays Town Centre between 10am – 3pm. Anyone unable to sign up on the launch day can contact the BATIAS office on 01375 389869 for more information.
Angie Cahill, Advocacy Manager says “BATIAS are excited to be able to launch this scheme in Thurrock which has already provided excellent support for vulnerable people in other Town Centres in Essex including Southend, Basildon and Canvey Island”
