General tips on personal safety
The following are precautions only. Freegle is a friendly place, but we have to stay on the safe side, so please consider these tips.
- Do not include your address or phone numbers in descriptions of items that you offer. Contact details are only required when you exchange an item.
- If you are concerned about meeting people when alone in the house, you can arrange to meet away from your home to pass on items (where practical) or make sure that people come round when you have a friend or relative with you.
- Finally, if anything about a Freegle contact concerns you, even if it's just vague "bad vibes", then feel free to trust your instincts! You can give items to whoever you choose and you don't have to justify the decision to anyone. Always let the volunteers know of any concerns. You may not be the only person to flag up the problem.
