It has never been more important to look after our mental well being. These are unsettling times for all of us and we would invite parents to visit our well-being page for help and advise where necessary.
Safer Places have launched a new live chat service to support those experiencing, or at risk of abuse. The new service enables anyone experiencing abuse to chat directly with a member of the Safer Places team.
The measures announced to tackle coronavirus (COVID 19) have seen day to day life change dramatically and undoubtedly made it harder for people to access support services as survivors are isolated with abusers with small windows of opportunity to speak. This new service will give survivors the opportunity to access support discreetly.
