SAFE! will continue to support young people and their families dealing with the impact of crime and abuse, throughout this national lock-down. There are likely to be delays to support services as we seek to deliver our services remotely.  We are also experiencing a large volume of referrals and enquires, so please do bear with us and we try our best to respond during this exceptionally busy time.  Please remember that although we are in a lock-down, government guidance states you are allowed to leave your home to go to a place of safety. Please take care of each other and look out for those who are struggling during these difficult times

Our online referral system is live!  From today please use the links on our Get Help page to refer a child or young person into any of our services

SAFE! has today released a new Safestories video which explores coercion and control in a teenage relationship.  Working with teachers at the Cherwell School in Oxford we have created PSHE teaching resources differentiated for key stages 3 and 4 to accompany the video.  You can watch the video here.
