Who we are
Safe Home is an independent charity for people affected by domestic abuse and dramatic incident. We are dedicated to supporting people affected by crime. Our specialist teams provide individual, independent, emotional, and practical help to enable people to cope and recover from the effects of crime.
Our mission is to help empower domestic violence victims. We believe that everyone has the right to be free from violence and exploitation and to live peacefully. We at Safe Home also believe that the 2019 Human Rights Act should be enforced and that it is our responsibility to recognise and uphold this law. We also have a mission to help domestic abuse victims live independently free of fear and abuse; we place the survivor’s voice at the centre of our work and address the needs of domestic abuse victims by providing them with clinical therapy, support groups, and services to help them become independent people with job, housing and healthcare.
