SAFE ZONE BUS
Dundee Safe Zone is a local charity. Every Friday and Saturday night from 10pm until 4am, the Safe Zone Bus can be found in Dundee City Centre, providing a safe zone for whoever may find themselves in trouble. In this friendly and warm environment, the team within the Safe Zone Bus provide people with a refuge, as well as advice and support.
From our point of view, we wouldn’t have a Safe Zone Bus if it wasn’t for the incredible work of ACD. We were hopeful when we bought the bus that the community would step forward to help, but the transformation of the bus was a bigger task than any of us could have imagined. John didn’t give up on us and delivered us an incredible conversion of the new bus, ready to use from Fresher’s Week onwards. Everyone knows that the Safe Zone Bus will help people who need to sober up, find a safe place to wait for friends or even get first aid, but between September and December, we performed 11 mental health interventions on people who were distressed or suicidal.
