Child Safe Zones, Wristbands and Helpline Window Stickers
Bluewater is family friendly and a safe place to shop. However, we know that losing a child, even for a few moments is distressing and our Child Safe Zones Shopping Scheme can get help immediately. All you have to do is pick up a wristband from one of the Concierge desks, write your child’s details and a mobile number and place the band on the wrist. If you do get separated from your child, they can go into any retailer displaying a child safe zone poster in the window or a Bluewater host who will take your child to the nearest Concierge desk where we contact the parent/guardian with the details on the wristband. The wristbands are bright, waterproof and tough so as well as shopping at Bluewater, they are ideal to use on other days out.
Look out for the bright orange balloon window stickers – these carry our helpline number: 08700 621911. If you lose a child or need to report an incident look for the nearest sticker and call this number to talk directly to our security and customer services team.
