Community Services: April 2020
Domestic violence cases since the introduction of the coronavirus lockdown have risen between 25 — 30%. The restrictions in place prohibit people from leaving their homes for all but essential reasons, which has highlighted the amount of people living with abusive partners, parents or family members.
Safer Places is an independent Domestic Abuse service in Hertfordshire and Essex with over 40 years experience and has been recognised as delivering excellent services.
We offer specialist support to all women, children and men who are affected by domestic abuse. We have a number of refuges across our areas if victims are seeking safe accommodation. Alternatively, we offer specialist advice, counselling services and support within the community
If you or a family member or friend is in an abusive relationship please call our 24 hr helpline 03301 025811 or email email@example.com for support.
