What is the Worcester Safe Space?

The Worcester Safe Space is a new project under Worcester BIDs program, aimed at providing safer nights for vulnerable individuals. Safe Space will be introduced on the 15th of December 2023 by using a mobile van that serves as a haven at night, offering first response first aid care, reducing the strain on the NHS in the A&E department during night-time economy hours. Additionally, it will provide a space for support and conversation and access to water and clothing if required, ensuring a safe night out in the city. Worcester BID will provide the Safe Space, with support from West Mercia Police, Worcester University, Worcester Street Pastors, and other key organisations.

Operation Times

The space will operate on Friday and Saturday nights between the hours of 10.30pm to 4.30am as well as supporting other large city events and University of Worcester Welcome Week.


Paramedic support will be located at Safe Space Worcester. Provided by local medical team, RTN Medical, Safe Space will support triage of individuals using the night time economy. Our aim is to reduce the strain on A&E by addressing those who require medical attention within the city, allowing minor injuries to be dealt with at the Safe Space.

Our paramedic team will also have the ability to test for drugs and alcohol, improving our triaging process. Mental health support will also be available.

Safe Space is supported by the Worcester Street Pastor’s, who will provide welfare support. Further to this, Safe Space will also have facilities to give people a safe space to wait, changes of clothes and bottled water.

To ensure that patrons of the night time economy are cared for and get home safe, Worcester Safe Space will offer taxi finder support, security alarms and drink stop tops and mobile phone charging.
