COVID–19

The Coronavirus is presenting many challenges, risks and worries across the world.

Safespots recognises the risks that self isolation poses to victims of domestic abuse and lock down is an incredibly concerning time for many in our community.

At Safespots, we remain committed to providing support to victims of abuse by working remotely. Please call 07873 889637 should you require assistance during this time.

Updates will be made via our facebook and twitter accounts and we ask that if you have symptoms of the Coronavirus that you contact the NHS immediately on 111.

This is an incredibly difficult time but we want to assure you that we will continue to offer support to those who need it to the best of our ability.

WYTHENSHAWE SAFESPOTS

A safe friendly environment for women

About us

Wythenshawe Safespots is a user led domestic abuse organisation based in South Manchester. Since 2016, Safespots has supported over 2869 women who have experienced domestic abuse.

The organisation was founded by local survivors of domestic abuse who wanted to help other women, who like them, had experienced abuse by providing a local centre where they could access help, support and friendship.

Safespots is more than just a centre, it is a place in the community where you can find information, help and advice. Information about domestic abuse should be easy to access and people should not be afraid to talk about it.

Safespots drop in centre, located in the heart of Wythenshawe, provides a friendly non-judgemental and confidential service for women. If you or anybody you know need support, we are here to help. Drop in for a brew and a chat Monday to Friday 9.30am-2.30pm, or give us a call to find out more about our services.

What is domestic abuse?

Domestic abuse can be any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between people who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender. This includes forced marriage and abuse within same sex relationships. Domestic abuse can affect anyone, whatever your background.
