Safenet Safe Houses
In addition to refuges, we also offer safe-houses in the North West for those at risk of domestic abuse. These residential properties are a stepping stone to independent living and are situated in confidential locations.
Our refuge residents can choose to stay in a safe-house if they are ready for greater independence but are still in the process of gaining confidence to live independently. They benefit from continued support through the refuge service.
We deliver daily contact/support (Monday – Friday) via a dedicated Resettlement Worker, and twice daily check-ins by phone (weekends).
This way, residents can continue to access support at a lower level for a longer period from our specialist support service to support increasing confidence, resilience and independence.
Should the need arise, we can also utilise a safe-house to house diverse family groups escaping abuse, i.e. a married couple; a brother and sister in their early 20s; someone identifying as transgender who does not want to stay in communal refuge; or those who do not ‘fit’ into existing services, i.e. larger families with older boys in their teens/early 20s.
