#SAFE's research, case studies and advocacy work support the findings of the Fawcett Society Report - An Independent Inquiry into Women and Jobseeker's Allowance, Amanda Arises, Carlene Firmin MBE, Baroness Meacher, Sir Keir Starmer QC, Rosamund Urwin.  We do not feel that "the report is misleading and wrongly suggests that women don't make use of our important safeguards in the same way men do.

Testimonial & A Message

COCOON, PROTECT & SERVE

Tracy has requested #SAFE share this testimonial as a blog, she hopes it "encourages others to come forward."

TESTIMONIAL 

I am regarded as a high risk victim of Domestic Violence.  In September 2014, after seeing numerous media campaigns from the police for victims of DV to speak out & “end the silence” & that victims would be “believed & listened to” I apprehensively decided to finally report my DV.  Following a DASH risk assessment I was immediately assigned an IDVA, an ISVA & my case was referred to MARAC.

#SAFE EXPANDS ADVOCACY SERVICES

"I believe more should and can be done to ensure that victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking and abuse are as safe as possible.  

I believe more should be done to protect the 750,000 children who witness domestic violence/abuse every year. 

I believe every child has a right to be safe and every child should be seen, heard and believed, I believe that this is OUR responsibility.

DIRECT SENSITIVE ACCESS REFERRAL SYSTEM FOR VULNERABLE PEOPLE 

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL VIOLENCE, ABUSE

#SAFE are pleased to announce the launch of the first UK direct referral system for Sensitive Access - #SAFEGuarding victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and abuse.

The procedures and guidelines that are currently in place for securing Sensitive Access are not working therefore exposing vulnerable people to further risk and distress, this is not acceptable and #SAFE have taken steps to address and challenge this.
