For the city’s Safer Streets welfare hub, based outside Carlisle train station, will now operate from 9 pm to 3 am every Saturday night to help anyone who feels vulnerable or unsafe on a night out.

It is a multi-agency approach between the police, Carlisle City Council, Cumbria University, and the Street Pastors group, to ensure that vulnerable people, women and girls are safe at night by providing a place anyone can attend for assistance.

Since April, the hub has supported 47 people, offering a range of support such as organising safe travel arrangements for vulnerable women in need, locating a missing person found in the railway station, assisting homeless people, supporting missing young people in foster care and providing medical attention.
