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.

NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE CONFERENCE - DORSET POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER

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.

Summer Challenge for Refuge


Eve Thomas - #SAFE Cocoon, Protect & Serve. Email:  SAFE@evethomas.co.uk
The website is going through an overhaul during the next few weeks ready for 2015 and the next phase.

This is the page that was created for Eve's Summer Challenge, her saunters in support of Refuge Charity.

Eve raised £1215.01 and would like to thank all those that donated and left kind messages of support and encouragement.

The weather makes it impossible for Eve to complete her challenge and she is hoping that she will finally conquer Scafell Pike next year.

Home Swapping – A #SAFE warning for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence & abuse

As a by-product of our quick moving technological era, the prospect of a new home is at the fingertips of many social housing tenants through the “home swap system”. This allows tenants to mutually exchange their homes through an online gateway. This is a desirable prospect for an increasing number of social housing tenants who may seek a larger or smaller house or who may wish to move to a different area and, at the same time, avoid lengthy waiting lists.
