No-one should have to live a life of fear and abuse - with your donation we can continue our live-saving, life-changing services

We are delighted that CCSA have chosen to support us and are leading this appeal encouraging others to take part, whether through donations or fundraising - every donation of any amount supports us to support survivors. 

Safer Places (formerly known as Harlow Women’s Aid) has over 40 years’ experience in delivering holistic support services to adult and child survivors of Domestic Abuse across Essex and Hertfordshire.  Over the years we have grown and adapted our services to meet the needs of the communities we serve.  We  now support thousands of survivors - women, men and their families who are coping with domestic and sexual abuse each year.

Domestic abuse has both a devastating and radiating impact and affects the survivor and their families, friends, colleagues and communities. Our team take a non-judgemental and respectful approach to their work and we will do all that we can to ensure that everyone who needs our services can use them, how they want to, when they want to, and where they want to. Domestic abuse does not discriminate and happens in every community. We are proud to work inclusively with anyone who has experienced abuse and our services are designed to reach everyone impacted by abuse. To do this we offer a range of services such as refuge, safe accommodation and community services and work collaboratively with our partners in a range of venues.
