Feel Safe

In 2013, the ‘Feel Safe’ project was established by Age Sector Platform to address fear of crime among older people in Northern Ireland and to help older people reduce their risk of being a victim of crime. 

Since the Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament was established, ‘fear of crime’ has remained one of the top three concerns of older people across the province.  The ‘Feel Safe’ project engages directly with older people to develop new ideas and solutions to address this fear.

The project is funded by the Department of Justice.

Feel Safe Guide

This guide has been developed to help older people in Northern Ireland feel safe in their homes and communities.  It provides some useful crime prevention advice, as well as information on organisations that can help you feel safe.

First published in 2015, the 'Feel Safe' guide was updated in May 2018.
