What is an outreach service?

The Safer Places outreach teams are made up of professional staff offering short to medium term support to women and men affected by domestic and sexual abuse in the community. Our teams offer information, advocacy and specialist services to increase safety and meet a range of needs – these can include ongoing safety concerns, emotional or housing support, legal options, reporting to the police, help around child contact, access to benefits and financial advice.
