About us


The Keep Safe Scheme aims to support people with learning disabilities to keep safe and get help in an emergency when out and about in Northamptonshire.

Who we are 

Northamptonshire Police


Members on the Keep Safe group are from the Hate Crime Unit, the Force Control Room, Crime Prevention and the Diversity team.
All Police Stations are Keep Safe places.

Members of the Keep Safe group are from the Safeguarding team and libraries. The libraries were some of the first Keep Safe places.

Maisie Plumb ​

My Name is Maisie Plumb and I am the Co-lead of the Keep Safe group. I also chair all the meetings. I have been part of the Keep Safe group right from the start, I am really passionate about making sure people with learning disabilities feel safe in Northamptonshire. I train the new Keep Safe places all about the Keep Safe card and all about people with a learning disability.

Richard Sherratt


My name is Richard Sherratt and I am a member of the Keep Safe group. I help train the Keep Safe places with Maisie. We have trained lots of places making us a good team. I joined the group as I was bullied when I lived independently. I told my story to police and was given a police award. I also spoke about how I was a victim of Hate Crime on BBC 1 in a documentary and Channel 4 News.

Sabrina Coe

I am Sabrina, I was asked if I would like to be part of a DVD for Keep Safe, I was a young lady using a wheelchair being bullied. I enjoyed doing this, and asked if I could be part of the team. I was then elected on to the Learning Disability Partnership  Board as a rep for Corby area. I also sell jewellery some of which I make. I really enjoy being involved and helping change things for people with a disability.

Dawn Line
