The Keep Safe Scheme in Gloucestershire was set up in July 2010 by Cheltenham entrepreneur Kelly Hennessey-Ford to support people with learning disabilities in the county.
Three years later The Police and Crime Commissioner in Gloucestershire acknowledged Kelly’s tenacity and passion by commissioning Keep Safe Keep Active to develop and expand the Keep Safe Scheme to offer support for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and dementia across the county.
We are thrilled that the lovely Kelly has generously offered to sponsor ten places for our Cheltenham Rock School in 2017 through Keep Safe in Gloucestershire.
