About SAFE!

If you are 8 to 25 years old, live in the Thames Valley and have been hurt by crime, SAFE! can offer you support. We believe that you have a right to feel safe at home, in school, work or college, in your street and in town.

We will work with you to help you get your confidence back if you have:

  • Been bullied at school
  • Been sexually abused or assaulted
  • Witnessed domestic violence
  • Been mugged, or physically assaulted
  • Been abused by cyber crime
  • Or been a victim of any other crime.

We offer one-to-one sessions with a professional worker. You can choose where you feel most comfortable meeting your SAFE! worker; it could be at home, or somewhere like your school, college, youth or community centre. Your SAFE! worker will help you develop ways of coping for times when you don't feel safe.

You will not have to talk about what happened to you, unless you want to.

SAFE! is an independent charity and this service is provided free of charge. Anyone can refer themselves or a friend who lives in the Thames Valley to SAFE!
