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.

Legal Rights

Domestic abuse is against the law so, you can:

  • Report your abuser to the police.
  • Call 999 In an emergency
  • Use the ‘civil’ law to protect yourself and your children, without involving the police.
  • Make an application to the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (Clare’s Law).  You have the right to ask if your partner may pose a risk to you.

To talk to somebody about this, please give us a call on 07873889637 or email [email protected] 

Our support service is available Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm

Housing

If you are fleeing domestic abuse, you have rights around housing.  You can:

  • Go to a refuge.
  • Seek support from the local council to access homelessness help.
  • Seek support to make your property safer.
