Home » My leisure » You and your friends safety Share page: Twitter Facebook

Whether at school, college, at home, online or out and about, it’s sensible to know how to protect yourself from possible risks or dangers.

Although women may feel more vulnerable when they’re out, it’s actually young men who are at a higher risk of violence.

Personal safety is straight forward. It doesn't matter where you live or what you're doing, there are simple steps that you can take to keep yourself, and your mates safe from harm.

  • Avoid walking home alone especially at night; avoid shortcuts through wooded areas, car parks or alleys.
  • Call or text people to let them know where you are going and when you will return.
  • Keep your possessions like money or your mobile phone out of sight.
