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.

Safespots Awarded National Lottery Funding

NEWS

We are pleased to announce that Safespots have been awarded £10,000 in funding from the National Lottery. It’s thanks to millions of National Lottery players that we’ve been able to apply for and be granted this funding, which comes directly from the proceeds of tickets. The money will be used to support hundreds of women from the Wythenshawe area fleeing domestic abuse with advocacy and support services.
Safespots provide a safe space in the heart of the community where women can talk, get information and take courses such as healthy relationships and money management, receive employment support and access legal first aid. Safespots is led by women who understand domestic abuse and have had similar experiences themselves, meaning there will always be an understanding ear and a friendly face.
Pat Hawkins, Chair of Safespots Board said:
“We are delighted to have received this grant, which will make such a difference to the lives of women in Wythenshawe. As a small organisation we rely on funding such as this to make the work we do possible. It says a lot for our service to be recognised by a big organisation like the National Lottery, so we would like to thank them for their support. It literally feels like we have won the lottery!”
