Today Safer Places launch the ‘Ask for J’ campaign across Essex. As local businesses begin to re-open their doors to members of the community the ‘Ask for J’ campaign opens the door to support for those experiencing abuse.
Coronavirus (COVID 19) is impacting upon everyone around the globe as more and more of us are asked to stay at home. Home is not always a safe place. Reported cases of domestic abuse are increasing and services like ours are seeing a rise in those who wish to access our services for advice and support. We know that many of you will feel unsafe and be frightened at having to stay at home with the abuser. We want to reassure you that we are here for you.
At Safer Places we have a range of training courses and qualifications available, from short 3 hour sessions to Level 3 and 4 accredited qualifications enabling you to work with those at the highest risk of domestic abuse and stalking. We also work alongside businesses and organisations, catering to your individual needs to give you and your teams the tools, skills and confidence to respond to survivors and break the cycle of abuse
