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.

#SAFEGUARDING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL VIOLENCE & ABUSE VICTIMS UK
  

Safeguarding issues pertaining to Department of Work & Pensions and Sensitive Access have been brought to #SAFE’s attention. 

Sensitive Access is a high level of security that protects a domestic violence, sexual violence, abuse victim’s personal, financial and #SAFE address details, replacing vulnerable people’s home addresses with a PO Box. 

Two safeguarding issues have been brought to #SAFE’s attention:

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.

A lot to learn.......


A LOT TO LEARN...........

When I think back to the safeguarding errors I made, the risks I took when I first fled and subsequently began to venture out into the world again it is frightening!  I was so naive, 21 years a long time to get back, I knew I had a long, hard journey ahead of me.

I am so glad I shared it all with you, you all played your part in assisting me finding ME again, THANK YOU. Good or bad, nice or attack you have ALL helped me find ME, I prefer nice folk tho.  2014 I found ME again, 2015 #SAFE!

#SAFE visits Barnardos

#SAFE VISITS BARNARDOS

During the Labour Conference earlier this year, Javed Khan CEO of Barnardos (former CEO of Victim Support) and I met for coffee and cake in my home city of Manchester, the Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry and safeguarding the essence of our conversation.

Javed invited myself and the team to London to visit the Barnardos archives and find out more about the work and campaigning that the charity undertakes, we accepted in a flash seizing the opportunity to also discuss #SAFE, our projects, missions, goals and objectives along with delivering messages.

Earlier this year I launched the Police and Crime Commissioner’s campaign for Eve’s Law and #SAFE. Martyn Underhill, PCC for Dorset was quick to pledge his support and being a man not merely content with his pledge he followed this up resulting in my attendance and speaking at the No Excuse for Abuse Conference in Dorset.

BEING #SAFE WHEN OUT & ABOUT

#SAFE take personally safety very seriously, we don't want you to be a victim.

Eve and Christine recently attended the People Safe and Suzy Lamplugh Trust Personal Safety Training Conference held in Leeds and wanted to share with you the knowledge and skills shared on the day by training professionals People Safe and the delegates who also attended in a series of blogs, this is the first.

Peoplesafe - experts in lone worker safetyThe training afternoon was targeted at lone workers but Eve was keen to see if the knowledge that Peoplesafe were sharing could apply to vulnerable people, victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and abuse when out and about.
