#SAFEGuarding Vulnerable People

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

Part 2

I wanted to really conquer Wales and so North Wales was next on the list and the 2nd highest mountain in the UK Snowdon - this I was dreading, it was really going to push me to my limits

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

When the alarm went off at 4.30am on Saturday morning I didn't groan I was out of bed like a shot, my LAST mountain of my Summer Challenge in support of Refuge Charity - Scafell Pike in the beautiful Lake District.

It all began earlier this year as I sat on the summit of my very first mountain, Catbells.  I struggled on the ascent and was even close to tears as my body protested against the steps I took but I was determined.

It is not #SAFE's intention to cause fear, we believe that a fully informed victim is a safer victim - #SAFEGuarding vulnerable people.

SNOWDON

I knew she was going to be a tough one!

As I sat and studied her profile from the campsite where we were pitched I had a feeling that Snowdon would be my most difficulty challenge yet.

On the journey down, just as I lost 3G on my phone I received a message from Llaneli Women's Aid, they had to pull out of the climb a knee injury....... I was concerned and wished Angela a full recovery but I knew I had a wee problem.

CHILD ABUSE & FGM
Last year a young girl contacted me, she was being taken against her will to Pakistan, her words "I'm being taken so my family can abuse me" haunted me for weeks.
The Police and the girl's school were notified immediately and for the next 6 weeks I was the only form of communication between the child and the UK.  The Police began to conduct their investigations and it was confirmed that the child had boarded a plane to Pakistan.

My Journey.......A New Beginning

MY JOURNEY......A NEW BEGINNING

Updated 28.10.14

As I approach my anniversary I think back over the last 4 years, they've been the toughest of my life....

On the 1st November 2010 I escaped over 21 years of domestic violence and abuse, it was horrific & I am very thankful that today I can stand on my own two feet.....literally.  It's been a tough journey both personally and professionally, I had a LOT of catching up to do.

This is not drama it is the truth.

2010 marked the start of a new journey for my girls & I and as we fled to the Police station bursting through the doors crying for help I knew I was #SAFE - the Police had promised me.
