Keeping Children Safe
Enfield Council have a community help point scheme (CHiPS) to provide a network of ‘safe havens’ across the borough, where young and vulnerable people who are lost, at risk or feeling vulnerable can go in and ask for help or assistance from the community. There are around 200 community help points around Enfield where staff have offered to provide a safe haven for those in need of support. Staff at the help points can make a phone call to get you or your child help, allow you to stay in the premises until help arrives or until a risk has passed, call the police if you are the victim of a crime or call a member of your family or care team if you need more help. Please talk to your child about this scheme and look out for the CHiPS blue logo so that they know where to go in an emergency.
