Boro Angels, Middlesbrough, are a strategic partner in the operation of a Safe Place Haven. The scheme has proved an overwhelming success as David Gee, coordinator of Boro Angels, explains in this BBC Radio Tees interview:
Many of the biggest benefits are preventative and, therefore, difficult to quantify - e.g. 12 people (a mixture of males and females) presented to the service on a Saturday in October having been spiked with rohypnol but all were cared for and got home safely as a result; several females have been prevented from getting into taxis with males who they didn’t know; people have been prevented from drink driving; ambulances are regularly stood down when the team are the first responders; etc.
