Accessing safety assistance in Canterbury city centre

Connected Routes

Follow the Connected Routes map if you're travelling home from a night out in the city centre.

The map includes routes where there are regular patrols, refuge points, and increased lighting and CCTV coverage. It is also covered by the SafeZone app. 

Any activation of SafeZone on the Connected Routes will give the University of Kent or Canterbury Christ Church University security control room your location, so they can offer you support.

The Connected Routes map was created in partnership with Kent Union.
