Here To Help You Live a Life Free From Domestic Abuse

You deserve to be safe, happy and healthy in your relationships with your family, friends and community. Domestic abuse affects many people, regardless of age, gender, financial status, location, religion or sexuality.

If you are in a relationship where you feel unsafe, unhappy and unhealthy, or have ended such a relationship and are still experiencing abuse, we can help.

If anyone in your family or others that you know are abusing, controlling, harassing or violating you, we can help.

You don’t have to deal with this alone. We offer a safe place to stay if needed, along with support, guidance and practical help to create a safer, happier and healthier future for you.

We offer inclusive, non-judgemental and respectful services to women, children and men.

We recognise the additional challenges faced by people within the LGBTQI+ community, and are proud to have been awarded the Lancashire LGBT Quality Mark.

Refuge services for women and children

Our refuges are open to women and children 365 days a year. We are staffed 24/7 to ensure we can respond effectively to emergency referrals to help those in crisis or in immediate need, and also to maintain security and safety for all our residents throughout the day and night.

Men’s Safe Houses

We deliver a dedicated safe-house for men who are escaping domestic and interpersonal abuse. We also offer emotional and practical support whilst recognising and addressing the gendered differences in the nature of abuse experienced.

Children and Young People’s Services

We provide a positive environment where children and young people feel safe and live free from abuse, helping them to thrive in all areas of their development.

SafeNet Safe Houses

In addition to refuges, we also offer safe-houses in the North West. These residential properties are a stepping stone to independent living and are situated in confidential locations.
