Safeguarding Support

Safe Spaces

Safe Spaces is a free and independent service supporting survivors of church-related abuse, of any form, however long ago. Survivors do not have to have told the police or the church authorities and they do not have to be still involved with the church. Although the service is funded by the Church of England, together with the Catholic Church in England and Wales and the Church in Wales, it is run independently by the charity Victim Support, who are one of the leading charities providing specialist support to survivors of abuse in England and Wales. Please note, from 23 September 2022, new callers wishing to receive support through Safe Spaces will be supported through the interim provider, Splitz Support Services, an independent charity specialising in supporting victims and survivors of abuse. The interim service will be available via telephone and email.
