City Centre Safety

What we do:

  • Safe Newcastle’s City Centre Co-ordination Group pulls together partnership activity to address issues related to the day time and night time economies in the city centre.
  • Work around tackling shop lifting, street drinking and begging and campaigns to help revellers stay safe when on a night out.
  • Provide a Safe Haven for people who might be feeling vulnerable during the evening when they might have become separated from their friends, lost their mobile or maybe feeling the effects of alcohol and need a safe space to sober up before making their onward travel to home.

  • Northumbria Police (non-emergencies): 101 (in emergencies phone 999).
  • Newcastle City Council (environmental problems – including fly-tipping, litter, graffiti and noise complaints): 0191 278 7878
