Safer Meet

Coffee shop

Remember these tips when meeting someone new

  • Know who you’re talking to – have a look at their social media and see if they are who they say they are
  • Want to meet up? Make it public and keep your belongings close to you. If you feel uncomfortable remember you’re free to leave at any point
  • Make your own way and don’t share your address. This means you can decide when you want to leave too
  • Tell a friend or relative your plans, and drop them a message to let know how you’re getting on
  • Download the Hollie Guard app which can alert a trust contact if you’re in danger and share your location
  • Use the What 3 Words app to share an exact location with friends
  • If you’re sending photos of yourself, make sure you trust the recipient with them
