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.

Platinum Status for Local Business

We are really pleased to announce that in November 2020, Cardinal Maritime became our first Platinum Sponsor by donating £1500 to the organisation. This fantastic local business asked colleagues to nominate a charity that meant something to them and Wythenshawe Safespots were one of the chosen beneficiaries.

Since the first Covid-19 lockdown in March, the organisation has supported 1249 women. Our support has included the delivery of emergency food supplies, emergency transport to refuge, practical assistance for women moving into new accommodation, emotional support and guidance, virtual sessions and signposting to other services, such as Legal Aid. The additional demand on our services required us to work differently, whilst continuing to support fully.

It is important that domestic abuse is talked about across all levels of society, as it can and does affect anybody and we are really pleased to see such a big local company recognising this and supporting us to continue our work in tackling the issue.

Pat Hawkins, Chair of the Wythenshawe Safespots Board said:

It is fantastic to see a local company supporting a charity dealing with complex issues within their community. Covid-19 has increased demand on our organisation, with more women needing support around domestic abuse as a result of lockdown and the subsequent restrictions. This donation from Cardinal Maritime will go directly to helping those women in our community who need support. We want to say a big thank you for this donation and we look forward to working with Cardinal Maritime in the future.”

Wythenshawe Safespots continues to operate a telephone support service Monday to Friday 10 – 5pm so, if you or somebody you know needs support, please get in touch on 07873889637 or email us at [email protected]
