The Man Who Helped Me Save My Life



#SAFE - Eve Thomas - Cocoon, Protect & Serve
THE MAN WHO HELPED ME SAVE MY LIFE

In 2010 I escaped over 21 years of domestic violence and abuse.  As I approach the 4th anniversary of my new life I wanted to share with you a very special man, a man who helped ME save MY life and become the strong, empowered and in control woman that I am today.  I got ME back, all of ME - there IS life after domestic violence/abuse and no matter how broken, how afraid you are it IS possible to LIVE.
  
This man witnessed and suffered horrific violence and abuse as a child and now at almost 60 years of age he has given his entire life to helping others and has become a very successful and world leading authority in his field.

Protecting #SAFE 

A #SAFE address is any address that is unknown to an abuser, a perpetrator of abuse/violence.

Many domestic violence, sexual violence, abuse victims flee/escape/leave violent and abusive situations and relocate - this is their #SAFE.

Protection of a vulnerable persons #SAFE is of paramount importance.  It is not #SAFE's intention to cause fear - #SAFE believe that a fully informed victim is a safer victim.

The protection of a vulnerable persons #SAFE will drastically reduce re-offending - further violence, abuse, stalking and even MURDER.

SAFEGUARDING VULNERABLE PEOPLE

#SAFE RISK ASSESSMENT 

Mosaic Risk Assessment - GAVIN DE BECKER


Pending inquires made to Gavin De Becker and permission to use Mosaic #SAFE hope to be using this crucial safety tool for every victim who approaches #SAFE for safeguarding along with our other safeguarding tools.  This would  be done until #SAFE have finished developing our own #SAFE Risk Assessment

The Risk Assessment will then be handed to the Police to provide the bigger picture and support any investigations/cases and support the risk assessments that they complete - DASH - crucial safeguarding for vulnerable people

The 26th July was a hot day with temperatures reaching 25 degrees, I was thankful that rain was far away after the climb to the summits of Corn Du and Pen y Fan but by the time I was only half way up I was praying for the clouds to cover the sun - it was too hot
